Pilgrims en route from York, Leeds and Doncaster arrived in Grantham on Monday 7 June 1926. They were welcomed by Miss Lawrence, on behalf of the local League of Nations Union. An afternoon’s leafleting was followed by a well-attended meeting in the Sessions Hall. Many speakers praised the resolve of the pilgrims. The model resolution on law, not war was proposed and carried unanimously. A collection was taken to cover the pilgrims’ expenses and to pay for a ‘name board’ for Grantham, which would be carried onwards to London to be displayed at the final rally in Hyde Park on 19 June 1926.
