Methodist Church War MemorialPrint Page
Two stained glass windows commemorate those who served in World War Two. They were unveiled in 1946, - the year of the Tod Street Methodist Church centenary.
His Excellency the Governor (Sir Willoughby Norrie) and Lady Norrie, accompanied by Miss Rosemary Norrie, attended the centenary celebrations of the Tod Street Methodist Church in Gawler on Sunday to unveil the memorial windows and honor roll to members of the services. They were met by the minister (Rev. E. Tregilgas) and the president of the Methodist Conference (Rev. R. H. Davidson).
The Governor said that he had come into contact with Australian servicemen in both the 1914-18 war and the recent war, and he knew of no better soldiers. On the memorial windows are the names of the 74 servicemen and women who enlisted from the Tod Street church and Sunday school.
