|2nd Lieu. Claud Arthur Leonard Walker, Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers|
Killed in Action 11 July 1916, Battle of the Somme, aged 21.
In conducting research into the activities of the Lodge and it's members during the First World War, it became clear that there had been, at one time, a 'roll of honour' of members who had gone into service. This roll has been lost, and any printed versions also appear to have been lost in time. However the minutes of the meetings throughout the war still exist, and therefore, through research into those minutes we present a reconstructed 'Roll of Honour'. There are almost certainly names missing from this list, as it only pertains the named individuals in the minutes and references to total numbers in active service, far exceed the number of names to account for them.
