Rev J R Walker

 
 

Claro Times - 15th October 1915

The Rev J R Walker, who has since 1909 been pastor of the Harrogate Baptist Church, has, as reported by us previously, been appointed a chaplain to the forces under the Free Churches United Board, and left Harrogate in the early part of this week for the Dardanelles. His farewell services at the Baptist Church on Sunday were very well attended, especially the evening service, and the number who will feel his departure as a great personal loss is considerable. It will, however, be generally recognised that in his new sphere, administering to the needs f the best of Britain's manhood, Mr Walker will be quite happy. The young people of the Baptist Church have found him ever ready to help and encourage them in the cultivation of high ideals and work for good causes. His manly Christianity is the admiration of all who know him, and we have no doubt that the boys at the Dardanelles will have reason to love and respect Mr Walker before he has been very long in their midst.
