The Great War 1914 - 1918. Roll of Honour St John's Parish. "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends". Year after year their life was a fine thing. They were in Hell every day of their lives: and they endured. They were in peril of death and worse than death, day after day, night after night, and they endured. They....nerve shattering rage of artillery, artillery that rived the soil like an earthquake, which hurled the bodies of the dead into the air and flung the bodies of the living into a deeper sepulchre and they endured. .....to storm the trenches of the enemy, to destroy machine gun nests, to break a line of fire, the very thunders of which deafened men: and they endured. They endured for these years a manner of life utterly...of words. There has been nothing like this in the history of the world.
