Prospect Methodist Sunday School Honour BoardPrint Page Print this page

The Prospect Methodist Sunday School Honour Board commemorates those from the church who served in World War One.

In common with other Methodist Churches throughout the Empire, Prospect North responded nobly to the call of King and country. Nearly all the eligible young men connected with the church and Sunday School have enlisted.  The Young People's Bible Class, with the exception of one or two, responded to the call of Empire. The soldier members of the class and others while away fighting received a Christmas box and birthday greetings each year. They were kept well supplied with socks, and to crown their efforts the class have had erected, a fine honour roll to keep in memory their 'pals' who did so much for them. On Sunday last this roll was unveiled bv Col. S. Price Weir, D.S.O.

The roll of honour is constructed of blackwood, and the names are written in gold letters. The memorial was made by Messrs. Farr & Gordon. There are 74 names on the roll, 13 of which are those of soldiers who have made the supreme sacrifice.
