A memorial window, a portrayal of the
"The Last Supper", was unveiled at morning service at Lugar Brae Methodist Church, Waverley,
on 3/11/1946. The window, placed in the rear of the church, was a gift
from Mrs. Holman and family, in memory of NX37680 - Pte. Trevor Ian HOLMAN,
died on the Thai-Burma Railway on 7/10/1943. It
was unveiled by the Rev. N.H. Kline of Singleton, who was Minister of
the church during the War.
The church is
now known as the Lugar Brae Uniting Church, and
is located on the north-eastern corner of
Leichhardt Street and Lugar Brae Avenue,
The wording at the bottom of the window reads:
"In loving memory of Trevor Ian Holman,
1922-1943, died POW in Malaya, Greater love hath
From "The Methodist", January 18, 1947
Window at Lugar Brae
"On Sunday, 3rd
November, at Lugar Brae Church, in a most
inspiring service, a lovely window was dedicated
"To the Glory of God, for the light an beauty of
this sanctuary, and in affectionate remembrance
of Trevor Ian Holman."
Trevor died on
the 7th October 1943, whilst prisoner of war in
Thailand, and the window was given by his
mother. It is a portrayal of the Last Supper, a
beautiful piece of work done by Mr. A.C. Handel.
The service and
dedication were carried out by Rev. N.H. Kline,
who had known Trevor in the Church and Sunday
School. In dedicating the window he said that
"Trevor stood forth as a young man of
unimpeachable character, of gracious courtesy
and Christian idealism. Those who knew him best
loved him most, and offer their thanks to God
who gave him.
He came from a
Christian home and grew up in fellowship of the
Church to Christian manhood.
In the cause of
freedom he gave the last full measure of his
devotion, and in that remembrance he will be
enshrined in our hearts, his memory will be
perpetuated in this beautiful window. What he
and others of like mind and character have done
will be shown in a world of integrity like
theirs, in courage such as they showed, and in a
passionate dedication to freedom."
Mr. W. Bolt and
Mrs. Southon sang the duet, "Beyond the Sunset",
and the choir gave Beethoven's "Creation's
Hymn", and at the close of the service th
triumphal "Hallelujah Chorus". One of the hymns
sung was Whittier's "All as God Wills".
