"Take these men as your example, like them remember that posterity can only be for the free: that freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it." Pericles, 431 BC

SS Peter & Paul, Griston Church Covenant

In St Peter & Paul Church, there hangs a Covenant, signed by Americans  who attended the church while stationed in the area. The signatures were transcribed several years ago, and I have taken that original typed list and tried to copy it below. It's hard to read--I know lots of these names are not correct. I'm going to arrange to get over later in the year to check them, and to transcribe the Covenant. The church is closed at the moment for restoration work.
