On the win­dow front line

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS -

A FU­NERAL di­rec­tors has made a novel take on First World War com­mem­o­ra­tion.

Wald­ing and Sons – part of Lodge Broth­ers – has en­cour­aged ev­ery one of its 40 branches na­tion­wide to cre­ate a win­dow dis­play for a com­pe­ti­tion in which the Uxbridge of­fice took first prize.

Last week, Bev­er­ley Lodge, a direc­tor of the com­pany, was ac­com­pa­nied by two ex-ser­vice­men, Bill Moore and Tony Box­all, who judged the com­pe­ti­tion.

Mr Moore, 90, is chair­man of Wok­ing Royal Air Force As­so­ci­a­tion, and Mr Box­all, 82, is the chair­man of the town’s Air Crew As­so­ci­a­tion.

Six win­dows were short­listed and the vet­er­ans vis­ited them all.

Suzette O’Rourke’s ef­fort, com­plete with plenty of mem­o­ra­bilia, at the Uxbridge of­fice, took the hon­ours.
