Hindmarsh Baptist Church Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates those from the church who served in World War One.

A roll of honor, containing the names of forty five young men associated with the Hindmarsh Baptist Church who enlisted for active service was unveiled on Sunday evening by the Mayor of Hindmarsh (Mr. G. A. Nobie). There was a large congregation, which included members of the town council and members of the local volunteer fire brigade under Superintendent G. J. Plenty. The mayor said the men whom they honored that night represented service and sacrifice — two of the grandest things in the world. The Rev. Donald McNicol preached from the text, "They shall beat their swords into ploughshares and their spears into pruning-hooks."
Advertiser (Adelaide), 13 September 1920.
