This interesting and informative book, authored by David G. Marshall, a WWII veteran, long-time congregant, and former Clerk of Session, contains the names and information of all those members of First Presbyterian Church in Regina, who gave their lives in times of war.  They are commemorated with an inscription in one of the south windows in the Sanctuary.  Each name, and the shield on which it is depicted, are explained in detail in the book and information about these soldierís lives and families and relationship to First Presbyterian Church in Regina is documented.

About the Author - David George Marshall:

David was born October 1, 1924 to the Reverend Thomas and Mrs. Martha Ann (Mina) Marshall.  One of 5 children, David was brought up in the Presbyterian denomination that he supported and loved his whole life. In 1948 David married the lovely and charming June and they raised 4 children (Peter, Sue, Judy and Mimi).  In 1952 the young Marshalls moved to Regina where Dave worked at Gestetner for 27 years and for 13 years at Mutual Life.

At the age of 18, Dave joined the Canadian Army and went to fight overseas as a proud member of the South Alberta Regiment.  He participated in the liberation of Holland, Belgium and France.  Wounded twice during the Second World War, Dave always told people that what saved him was that the shrapnel always hit him in the head! 

Davidís sense of humour and fun are legendary! All aspects of First Church life for the past 53 years carry memories of Davidís antics, his laughter, his really bad puns, and his love of this congregation of faithful people.

Daveís commitment to those who served their country in the Armed Forces was also extremely strong.  He is responsible for ensuring that all soldiers are remembered in both the Churchís Honor Roll and the Memorial to Freedom Stained Glass Window. 

Stricken with late onset ALS in the last two years of his life, David passed into the love and care of Godís angels on Monday, August 29, 2005.
