Ascot Vale Methodist Church on Sunday morning, when the enlarged honor roll was unveiled in the presence of a large congregation. The roll contains the names of 64 past and present members and adherents of the church and school, of whom 11 have paid the supreme sacrifice, viz.:- H. Chapman, G. Garner, Charles Quinton, F. Seymour, H. Harding, W. Cheffers, H. Royle; C. G. Doig. L. Mateer, J. C. McDonald, J. G. Thompson. The unveiling ceremony was performed by the minister, Rev. H. Richardson. Mr. V. Mason read the names of those, whose lives have been spared, and expressed the thanks and feelings of the members of the congregation for the sacrifices made and duty nobly done. The congregation rose and stood in silence while the names of the honored dead were called. The Last Post was then sounded by two members of the Ascot Vale Bugle Band. An appropriate prayer by Rev. Richardson   brought an impressive ceremony to a close. The honor board, which is of splendid design and workmanship, is the gift of two of the members of the congregation, Mr. W. Cubbins and Miss Walklate, the former providing the material for the board and making same, while the latter did the writing of the names very taste fully.
