Report in the Cheshire Observer October 1915
Lt Col E T Logan DSO Cheshire Regt. Memorial Service at Chester Cathedral
A service was held in the Military Chapel at Chester Cathedral and a large attendance of officers, warrant officers, NCO’s and men of the County Regiment with which the Col. Had rendered such yeoman service as well as his own Battalion, the 3rd, striking testimony to the high esteem and warm regard in which he was held. Khaki was the predominant colour among the congregation, and many men who have withstood the enemy’s withering fire, but who were not mortally wounded attended, to pay respect to one who was a fearless leader in the field, as well as a master organiser at home. It was particularly appropriate that the service was held in Cheshire Regimental Chapel with its sacred associations and memorials of other fallen heroes, as well as its battered but glorious colours which other generations of Cheshire men had followed.
The troops present include the whole of the Regimental staff, officers & NCO’s from the 3rd Battalion at Birkenhead, with a detachment of 20 NCO’s & 30men, the majority of whom had seen service at the front.
A memorial service was also held at St James’ Christleton;
Among the village mourners were;
Mrs Cullimore, Mrs Sidebottom, Mr Sidebottom jnr, Mr and Mrs Heywood, Mr J W Macfie (Rowton Hall) Mr Radcliff and Mr and Mrs Porritt, Mrs R R Salmon, Miss Day and Miss N Day, Mr Thomas Johnson, Mr R Plant, Mrs Bevan, Mrs Millwood, the Misses Griffiths, Miss Mosford, Miss V Mosford, and the maids from Christleton Bank.
