Hold Memorial Service for Well-known Lindsay Soldier

At the Palm Sunday morning service in Queen Street Church, Rev. H.C. Wolfraim conducted a Memorial service for Pte. Woodrow Brown who was killed in action in Germany on March 9th 1945.

Woodrow enlisted in September 1943 and after training at three military centres went overseas in October 1944. He was in Holland by November 10th 1944, serving with the 5th Algonquin Regt. He paid the Supreme Sacrifice on March 9th, 1945 somewhere in Germany.

The Minister after reading extracts from three letters which he had received from Woodrow since last Christmas, paid tribute to the genial, kind and enthusiastic spirit of this brave soldier who lived daringly, dangerously and sacrificially. The subject of the tie sermon was Facing Life’s Central Test.

Woodrow transferred his Church membership to Queen Street Church in April 1941 from M. John’s Church in South Verulam after he and his foster-mother, Mrs. Ransom, came to live with Mr. and Mrs. George Murphy (the latter being Mrs. Ransom’s daughter). He was active in the Queen’s own young people’s Bible Class and young people’s Union.

Up to the present, 10 young men of Queen Street Church have died on Active Service and 17 have been wounded.
