Corporal T R Pallett


Harrogate Herald - 16th January 1918

Roll of Honour

A reproduction will be found on our picture page of a beautifully illuminated Certificate of Honour forwarded to Mrs Pallett, Goldsborough Station, by the Borough Council of Ealing, in grateful recognition of her husband, Corporal T R Pallett (Northumberland Fusiliers), killed in action on April 28th, 1917. Mrs Pallett is the daughter of Mr Donaldson, Goldsborough stationmaster.

I reply to Mrs Pallett's letter of acknowledgement and thanks, she received the following letter from Alderman D A Griffin :

Town Hall, Ealing

December 10th, 1917

Dear Madam, Thank you for your letter. I am very glad that the Certificate of Honour is appreciated. My Council feels that the sacrifice of those who have given their lives for the freedom of the world should be gratefully acknowledged, Yours faithfully, D A Griffin, Alderman. With sincere sympathy.

Corporal Pallett's name is on the Roll of Honour at St John's Church, West Ealing, and also at St John's Men's Institute, where he was the games secretary for many years. Out of a membership of a little over a hundred, forty-seven have already made the great sacrifice. He is on the Civil Service Roll of Honour, on that of the Ealing Branch of Pitman's, and his name is one of those to be included on the permanent memorial of King's College students. He has also recently been placed on the Roll of Honour in Goldsborough Church, thanks to the kindness and sympathy of the rector, the Rev E W Evans, CF, and the Rev N W Stockdale, curate in charge.

The certificate reads as follows : 

"Greater love hath no man than this, that he lay down his life for his friend". "This is to certify that Corporal Pallett offered his service to his King and country in the Great War, and that he served faithfully even unto death. The Borough of Ealing is proud of its heroes and the Town Council has inscribed the name of the above in its roll of honour. In witness whereof the said Council has hereunto affixed its seal".
