100 YEARS AGO: Sussex Express 28 July 1916. Panels for Westminster Cathedral. In support of his claim for exemption, Arthur E R Gill, Ditchling, said he was a sculptor, and was engaged in producing panels representing the Crucifixion and the death of Jesus Christ for Westminster Cathedral.

His two assistants had joined the Army. Conditional exemption was granted.
