Memorial Service held for late Tpr. John Hardy
Cambridge Street Baptist church congregation augmented by friends and relatives of the late Trooper John Hardy, son of Mr. and Mrs. H.J. Hardy, Glenelg St., taxed to overflowing the present meeting quarters on Sunday when Rev. R.M. Harmer, BA, BD, conducted a solemn and impressive memorial service in honour and memory of the late Tpr. John Hardy who gave his life for his country in Belgium on September 14, 1944.
A member of Cambridge Street Baptist Church and a former member of the Sunday School, Tpr. John Hardy although only eighteen years of age was not one to shirk his responsibilities and gladly responded to the call of duty which ultimately led him to Belgium and a soldier’s grave.
During the memorial service, words of tribute were read from his former minister, Rev. P.C. Reed. Beautiful floral tributes from loving friends banked the pulpit for the ceremony.
