Soldiers Memorial Window
IN ST. JOHN'S C. E. ROBERTSON.
The unveiling and dedication ceremony of the above was carried out on Sunday afternoon last, the church being well filled and the congregation including a very fair sprinkling of returned soldiers. The service, which commenced at 2-90 p.m., was conducted by the rector, Bev. J F Rofe, assisted by Rev D T Smith, who also carried out the unveiling and dedication ceremony, and preached a sermon most appropriate to the occasion from the text. These are they who have come out of
great tribulation. The preacher paid an eloquent tribute to the sacrifice made by the
fallen men of Robertson, in whose memory the window is created. The fact that they were volunteers made them the more honored. Only those who were there could realise what tribulation they passed through. In their short lives they accomplished more than most men who live the allotted span of three score and ten years. Very feeling words of comfort were tendered to relatives present. At the close of the service the "Dead March in Saul" was played by Mrs Rofe, and the
National Anthem sung by the congregation.
The window is a vary fine one, the cost amounting to £50, of which only £3 is still
outstanding. It bears a representation of St Mark and Lion, with the A.I F. Rising Sun
at the bottom, together with the names of P E Bursill, J A Dodd, L. C.Hayes, G A Johnston, C G Schuhmann, J C Shierlaw, and B Vandenbergh, all of whom made the great sacrifice.
