“This book is a result of an exhibition marking the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I and is a special memorial to those we know about and those still unknown, who died and are associated with St John the Baptist, Roman Catholic Church in Perth.” – Steve Clayes

“The book is a timely one: the First World War’s centenary commemorations are all behind us and the war is passing from memory into history. It is important, then, to recall those who fought and those who died, to ensure that at least something of their lives, cut short by violence, is remembered. Steve Clayes’ meticulous research has certainly managed to save that little something, the precious details of lives that were so strongly rooted in the Catholic community….” – Deacon Harry Schnitker

“Mr Steven Clayes has expertly gathered up all the fragments of our parish war dead from the Great War and made sure that “nothing be lost” for future generations. He has forged a unique and revelatory history.” Very Rev Steven Canon Mulholland, Parish Priest.
