Naas Roll of Honour


(Special to “Kildare Observer”)

Below we give the Naas Roll of Honour, being a return, so far as a available, of men either natives or residents of the town who have joined the colours since the outbreak of war. The list has been prepared in connection with the proposal to issue certificates of Honour to the relatives of our soldiers who have come forward to assist in the defence of country and of Empire. It is necessarily incomplete by reason of the difficulty in procuring particulars. Should omissions be noticed in the light – as doubtless they will be – and readers will forward us names, particulars of men whose names do not appear in the list, we shall be happy to make the necessary amendments and forward same to the Controller of Recruiting of so that certificates may be issued.
