And Finally… – Editor Dave King’s Column
These are extracts from a letter written in 1918, from the muddy trenches of Flanders by Liverpool Rotarian, Ernest W. Tickle. It was sent to Chesley R. Perry, Secretary of the International Association of Rotary Clubs and later published in The Rotarian. It’s hard to imagine how, amid the horror and carnage of war, those early Rotary ideals had taken root. The words, phrasing, the 170-word sentence, and even the parenthesis remain untouched, as Ernest’s powerfully poetic words surely serve as the best ‘And Finally’.
