Those whose names are here given were numbered among those who at the call of King and Country left all that was dear to them, endured hardship, faced danger, and finally passed out of sight of men by the path of duty and self sacrifice, giving up their lives that others might live in freedom.

 They went - They served - They sacrificed - They were noble

We Will Remember Them . . .
