Communion Set

The portable communion set seen [above]  was used by Reverend Lumley Green-Wilkinson to administer communion to the members of the 7th and 8th battalion, The King’s Royal Rifle Corps and the 7th and 8th Battalion, The Rifle Brigade, when he was Chaplain to the 41st Infantry Brigade in the 14th (Light) Division whilst serving in Ypres salient during 1915. This period included the German offensive at Hooge on 30/31 July when the brigade suffered over 1,000 casualties.*
