The Choir sang the opening rites of the funeral service and the 23rd Psalm. The Rector Rev. Hickey conducted a most impressive service- a short address made fitting reference to noble characters & rue courage of men whose loss they were deploring. He said that their names would be honoured- and their brave deeds remembered in coming generations. There was a very large congregation. The sympathy of everyone in the district extended to the relations of these men who all gave up good and comfortable homes, to go and take part in the great struggle.
