Biography contributed by Faithe Jones

A special carriage will be provided at South Geelong. At St. Stephen’s Church on Sunday evening a memorial service was held in honor of Private H. M. Lennox who fell in November, 1916. The Rev. G. W. Ratten delivered an address on “Sacrifice” asking all to put aside worldly ends of personal gain, prejudices of class, party feeling, small and paltry things, to dedicate their aims to the glory of God and the service of their country. Pte. Lennox was a member of the Sunday School Bible class, and gained the first prize, a Bible, not long before he enlisted. He had kept in close touch with his teacher and the Sunday School when at the Front. An enlarged photo was then unveiled, inscribed “Pte. H. M. Lennox, 29th Battalion, killed in action in France, November 2nd, 1916. For God, King and Country. Presented to St. Stephen’s by parishioners and friends.” The organist, Miss Grenfell, then played the “Dead March: in saul. This is the third soldier who has fallen from this church, the others being Sergt. C. R. Grenfell and Pte. E. W. Davis.”
