Great War Roll of Honour (1915)

Wellington Street Presbyterian Church, Ballymena

The following text is transcribed from the Ballymena Weekly Telegraph of 1st May 1915.



In our last issue we gave the "Roll of Honour" of First Ballymena Presbyterian Church, setting forth the names of the young men belonging to that congregation who had responded to the call of "King and country." This week we append the roll of honour of Wellington Street Presbyterian Church, of which Rev. R. M. M'C. Gilmour is the esteemed minister, and it will be seen therefrom that the young manhood of this congregation have readily given their services to the cause of the Empire. We append as far as possible in each instance the full name, home address, and regiment, in which they are serving:--
