PUPILS at a Golcar school had a simple message to give: The sacrifice of many in war will not be forgotten.
And the children at Wellhouse Junior and Infant School did so with a moving ceremony yesterday.
The school wants to ensure people who made the ultimate sacrifice in armed conflict will never be forgotten.
Pupils took part in a special rededication ceremony to a lost roll of honour, commemorating those who gave their lives in both world wars.
The 3ft square bronze plaque was re-dedicated by Methodist minister, the Rev Sue Pegg.
The plaque was a remnant from the former Methodist Church in Wellhouse which was pulled down decades ago.
Churchgoers used the school as a place of worship and stored artefacts in the cellars.
But the plaque was forgotten and discovered only recently during renovations at the school.
Yesterday's ceremony also saw Second World War veteran Charles Langdon give the traditional Kohima Epitaph.
He was joined by Bob Mortimer, the Royal British Legion county chairman.
Gillian Massey, deputy head at the school, said since the discovery of the plaque the children had learned a lot about its history and the conflicts that it remembered.
She added: "They were very interested and now know all about the war and the people who gave their lives."
Mr Mortimer said "Now it is back where it belongs.
"Every year there will be children who are curious about what it is and they will learn about it and they will learn of the people who gave their lives so we have the freedoms we have today.
"It will help youngsters learn about their country's past."
The school also mounted an exhibition about the war including display of photographs of people who lost their lives.
It was visited by many local residents who lost relatives in the conflicts.
