Anzac Commemoration

The commemoration of the fallen is a time-honoured traditional of St Paul’s College. This is particularly meaningful because of the chapel memorial with the Pauline Roll of Honour that includes the names of John Mair who died in the South African War of 1899-1902, the 20 men who died in the First World War 1914-18, the 25 men who died in the Second World War 1939-45 and Ian Mathers who died in the Vietnam War 1962-72.

The College community gathers at 10 am on Anzac Day for a commemoration service and this year the College Chaplain, Revd Antony Weiss, is preaching about the sacrifices made in war with a focus on the first Australian officer killed in action in the First World War, Captain Brian Pockley, who was at St Paul’s 1909 to 1913.
