On the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing, we remember those club members who fell defending our country in World War I:
- Rev. G.S. Bryan-Brown
- D Godfrey
- R.J.P. McConnell
- C Young
Read the research that club member Shane Young has done to uncover the stories of these fellow club members, and names of other club members who fought alongside them.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them
