PETONE TENNIS, CLUB ROLL OF HONOUR

A Roll of Honour in memory of members of the Petone Tennis Club who went to the war was unveiled by the Mayor of Petone (Mr. J. W. 1 M'Ewan) last Saturday afternoon. In the absence of Mr. B. C. Kirk (the president of the club), Mr. W. Haslam presided, and, introducing Mr. M'Ewan, said that the members of the club, in common with those of other sports bodies, had "played the game."

Mr. M'Ewan said the men who had gone had shown us that there was something more in life than getting all we could of material things. It was a sacrifice that could not be adequately gauged These men 4 had given their lives, that the rest of humanity might be freed from the great curse. The tablet, which is. tastefully designed in brass, is fixed to the wall of the pavilion, and contains the names of eight former members who were killed, seven who returned wounded, and fifteen others who served.
