On the window front line
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.
