In memory of Archie Forrest, a curious oak chair was given by his comrades. It served as a bishop's chair at confirmations. Moreovere, the back can swing forward to form a table in case of need. L/Cpl Archie Forrest, aged 20 years, was baptized, confirmed and made his first Communion in this chapel, all in six weeks before his death on 26 August 1917.
