Like the font stand, the two tall oak candlesticks were made from the carved posts of an old bedstead in the autumn of 1917. They were the gift of Driver Ketchem of the Canadian Royal Garrison Artillery. Each cone bears a small strip of shell case commemorating the Australians and Canadians who worshipped here.
Extra information
Lt. Daniel Hodges, 3rd Royal West Kent Regiment, who had designed the candlesticks, was killed before the work could be completed.
