Description

Wooden triptych, which carries names of members of the Independent Order of Rechabites, a friendly / temperance society, who died in the Great War. The outer panels of the triptych bear names of office holders of the Order.

Originally located in the Ventnor office of the Order, the memorial was later located in the offices in St Thomas Square in Newport, and was subsequently acquired by an antique shop in Cowes.

The current owner is Geoff Allan, the compiler of this web site, and the memorial is on loan to the Ventnor Heritage Centre for display.
