Those were the days: Lost on H.M.S. ‘Royal Oak’

The Impartial Reporter, October 26, 1939 - Memorial Service - The war laid its icy finger on Fermanagh first in this parish of Florencecourt, for Andrew Wallace perished in the ‘Royal Oak.’ At the fireside, at the fair, at the creamery, at the market, on all these occasions, the boy, his life, his promise was spoken of and now it was the turn of the Church. The rector had a trying task and he acquitted himself superlatively. Standing at the reading-desk he spoke proudly of this boy, calling him ‘Andrew’ as he had always done. To the superior officers of his ship there may have been naval terms in use, identity numbers and such like, but here in Florencecourt he was ‘Andrew’. (See Looking Back, 75 Years Ago).
