St Jude`s Alphington Honour Roll Print Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates those connected with the church who served in World War One.

St. Jude's Church of England, Alphington, was filled to overflowing on Sunday morning last, the occasion being the unveiling of the honor board, containing the names of those who have gone to do battle for those who are dearest to them. Mr Adams, one of the oldest residents of the district, unveiled the honor board, the vicar (Rev. C. P. Lee), spoke a few words on the sterling character of those who had paid the supreme sacrifice. Staff-sergt. Rev. G. Cox delivered a fitting sermon, and the choir rendered appropriate hymns. In response to an invitation the shire council was represented by Crs. Bryant, Ball, Hannah, May, Pitcher, and the shire secretary (Mr Price).
