Honour Roll Service at the Upper Sturt Methodist Church

“UPPER STURT. April 3.—A well-executed honour roll, framed in oak, has been placed upon the wall of the Methodist Church. It contains 21 names of those who have gone from this district to serve the Empire in connection with the present war, in both the army and navy. Four of these are sons of Sir Josiah and Lady Symon. Three others belong to one branch of the Coates family. Another three, one of whom has lost his life at the front, were sons of Mr. Henry Roe. The list is as follows:- Charles J. B. Symon, Oscar Sturt Symon, Carvil N. Symon, Oliver Symon, L. W. C. Leak, Hugh P. Leak, F.S.G. Evans, Henry Heyer, jun., F. H. Melville, F. G. Gates, Otto Viker, Charles Fullgrabe, G. L. Coates, L. A. Coates, Bert Coates, Frank Coates, W. E. Warland, Claude Ahrens, Sydney C. Roe (killed), Hugh H. Roe, H. Reece Roe.
An honour roll service was conducted in the Methodist Church yesterday afternoon by the Rev. W. T. Wiltshire, assisted by the Rev. A. H. Melbourne. The service was largely attended. The honour roll, which was covered with the Union Jack, was unveiled by Lady Symon, who said "God bless our boys, and may they be brought safely back to us." This was followed by an eloquent address by Sir Josiah Symon, who showed the need for more men, and made an appeal that greatly moved his audience.”
