It was reported at the AGM of the Lancaster League of Nations Union (LNU) in March 1921 that a meeting to promote the League of Nations Union in Galgate had been addressed by Rev. C. J. Milner, Vicar of St. John’s, Lancaster and member of the branch’s Executive Committee, in the year between April 1920 and March 1921. (1) Rev. Milner was one of the most enthusiastic of the clergy in the Lancaster LNU in spreading propaganda about the League of Nations . However, no evidence has come to light so far that a branch was formed in this industrial village, noted for its waste silk spinning. (2)
