Helen’s Bay Presbyterian Church
In A History of Helen’s Bay Presbyterian Church compiled by Margaret A.K. Garner in 1958 she commented that ‘the 1914 – 1918 War years were difficult for the Helen’s Bay congregation’.
She went on to say, ‘there has been considerable difficulty in compiling a complete Roll of Honour and the list printed may contain the names of members of other churches’.
Under the heading 1914 – 1918 In Memoriam 19 names were listed:
J A Craig
A W V Green
J S Ward
It is the case that not all of those listed died in the Great War.
Flight Lieutenant William Irwin was a Second World War Casualty who was killed on active service on Tuesday 9 March 1943. He was buried in Rheinberg War Cemetery, Germany.
