Fethard soldiers Death
An American paper, dated July 5, 1918, says:
“A large gathering witnessed the flag raising exercises of the residents of Stow and Burdon avenues and the unfurling of the service flag which contained seventysix stars. There was one gold star on the flag for Daniel McCormack of Fethard, Co. Tipperary, who was killed in action, and one silver star for Harold Mills, wounded in action. Speaking of Daniel McCormack the Chairman (Mr Patrick) said:
“Call Daniel McCormack and no voice answers back”. “Here I Am”. Words are but barren; words cannot express the debt we owe to him for whom a gold star is on the service flag. We can only stand by his grave and feel what speech has never told. He fought, died, was buried over there, and has gone to his great reward.”
