Baxters House, High Street, Kidderminster - Dining Rooms Featured Print

Baxters House, High Street, Kidderminster - Dining Rooms

Baxter's House, High Street, Kidderminster (not Stourbridge as incorrectly labelled on the card!!) - Dining Rooms. The building was originally the home of the celebrated divine Richard Baxter (1615-1691). He was appointed the minister of St Mary and All Saints' Church in April 1641, after earlier being master of Dudley Grammar School and a priest in Bridgnorth. The fighting of the English Civil Wars erupted soon afterwards and Baxter became a chaplain to the Parliamentary army but he returned to Kidderminster in 1647. In 1875 the people of Kidderminster honoured their former preacher with a statue, by the famous Worcestershire sculptor Sir Thomas Brock, that originally stood in the Bull Ring. Date: circa 1905

Reverend Edward Noel Mellish V.C., M.C Featured Print

Reverend Edward Noel Mellish V.C., M.C

The Reverend Edward Noel Mellish (1880-1962), Army chaplain during the First World War attached to the 4th Battalion of the Royal Fusiliers. Was the first member of the Army chaplaincy to be awarded the Victoria Cross. On three consecutive days, the 27 to 29 March 1916, during the heavy fighting at St. Eloi, Belgium, he went to-and fro continuously between the original trenches and the captured enemy trenches, attending to and rescuing wounded men. The first day, from an area swept by machine-gun fire, he rescued 10 severely wounded men. Although his battalion was relieved on the second day, he returned and rescued 12 more of the wounded. Taking charge of a group of volunteers, on the third day, he again returned to the trenches in order to rescue the remaining wounded. This excellent work was done voluntarily and was far outside the sphere of his normal duties. Pictured here at St. Paul's Church in Deptford, South East London where he was curate where he had just conducted a special children's service. The Illustrated War News reports he was over six feet tall and very popular, especially with children 'to whom he is notably gentle.' Date: 1916
