Description of the Roll of Honour.

In the offices of Messrs. Dunville & Co. Ltd., Arthur Street, Belfast, the firm have placed a handsome memorial in recognition of the men who served and those who died in the great war. The roll of honour has been beautifully illustrated by Mr. W. A. Fry, of Holywood. It is contained in a handsome oak frame supplied by Messrs. William Rodman & Co. Ltd., and occupies a conspicuous place on the left-hand side of the main entrance into the main office. At the top appears the inscription: – “In recognition of the men of the house of Dunville who served an in grateful memory of those who fell in the great War, 1914-19.” In all thirty-nine names are given, of which seven referred to deceased service men. These latter appear under the words-: “Died on service,” the names, rank, and regiment being as follows: -Corporal George Smiley, Royal Irish Rifles; Lance-Corporal James H. Cull, 14th Royal Irish Rifles (Y.C.V.); Lance-Corporal R. T. Newby, Queen’s Westminster Rifles; Private Ernest Barnett, 8th Royal Highlanders (Black Watch); Rifleman William H. Grainger, 14th Royal Irish Rifles (Y.C.V); Rifleman George W. Hall, 17th Royal Irish Rifles; and Private J. L. Partridge, Royal Fusiliers. The additional 32 names of those who served, given along with the rank on demobilisation, include that of Wing-Commander John D. Dunville, Royal Air Force, chairman of the Company, who up to recently was commandant of the Belfast Special Constables, but resigned the post owing to ill-health. The other names given are- Major J. R. M’Cullagh, 8th King’s Liverpool Regiment; Major H. C. Savage Royal Army Service Corps; Lieutenant Ernest Cochrane, 5th Royal Irish Rifles; Lieutenant J. A. Steele, 1 /4 Duke of Wellington’s (W.R.) Regiment; Lieutenant L. C. Wickes, Royal Army Service Corps; Regimental Quartermaster-Sergeant W. C. L. Scott, 3rd Northumberland Fusiliers; Sergeant David Cull, Machine Gun Corps; Sergeant R. M. Thompson, Royal Army Service Corps; Acting Lance-Sergeant F. J. Jupp; R.A. Pay Corps; Corporal Albert Murdoch, 14th Royal Irish Rifles (Y.C.V.); A. E. Walker, French Red Cross; Corporal R. Hughes, Royal Irish Rifles; First-class Air Mechanic H. J. Gaylor, Royal Air Force; Gunner Samuel Smith, Royal Garrison Artillery; Driver Charles Brown, Royal Army Service Corps; Trooper J. A. M’Clean, North Irish Horse; Rifleman Charles Bell, 2nd Royal Irish Rifles; Private S. Birch,  3 /4 Royal West Kent Regiment; Private R. H. Telford, Royal Army Medical Corps; Private V. Berry, Royal Air Force; Gunner Walter B. Siva, Royal Garrison Artillery; Gunner John Bell, Royal Garrison Artillery; Gunner David M’Arter, Royal Garrison Artillery; Private Hugh Nolan, Royal Munster Fusiliers; Sapper John Savage, Royal Engineers (Signal Section); Hospital-Orderly F. J. Peattie, Royal Navy; Cadet-Officer J. A. Rith, Officers’ Training Corps; Rifleman George Millar, 15th Royal Irish Rifles; Private F. Horrocks, 3rd Middlesex Regiment; Private W. Terry, 3/1 Royal Fusiliers; and a Private G. Cressy, 5th Royal Fusiliers. The decorative scheme has been very gracefully designed, a prominent feature being Union Jacks. Down the centre, between panels of the names, appears a representation of the Belfast arms surrounded by a laurel wreath and surmounted by the crown. On the left-hand side appears a symbolic representation of the sword of Justice (unsheathed), decorated with a laurel wreath and inscribed with the word “Justitia.” On the right-hand side is depicted the sheathed sword of Justice, also decorated with a laurel wreath inscribed with the word “Pax.” The lettering is tastefully varied as regards colouring, and the decorative scheme exhibits a discrimination in design and beauty of execution which reflects credibly on the execution of the artist.
