''''Courage — 'T/V the mysterious soul which never yields y 
But hales us on and on to breast the rush 
Of all the fortunes we shall happen through^ 
And when Death calls across his shadowy fields ^ 
Dyingy it answers 'Here — I am not deady 

Galsworthy 

HIS book has been conceived, executed and sent 
forth as a tribute to those "gentlemen unafraid'* 
of the Bank of Montreal who deliberately closed 
^ their ledgers, laid aside pen and pencil, left the 
^^ calm routine of a great institution, the security 
of a well-ordered business life, and went forth 
with sublime courage, not only to endure the dis- 
heartening and glamour-dispelling weeks of preliminary training that 
was necessarily the portion of our noble volunteers, but to face the 
most relentless and ingeniously evil foe that ever menaced civilization. 
For more than one hundred years the Bank of Montreal has ex- 
panded without weakening in the process of expansion, and this 
successful development has been characterized and sustained by an 
individual spirit of unselfish devotion and a subordination of personal 
ambition that have long since become traditional. When the time of 
national trial arrived it was these qualities, united with a fearless 
patriotism and a hatred of evil, that sent, as if inspired,fourteen hundred 
and nine members of our staff to fight for King and Empire. 




To-day there are two hundred and thirty missing from the 
Roll Call. Some lie afar. "Our Dead" is proudly graven on the tablet 
placed to their memory in our great hall. Others, — war-worn, broken,, 
recovered and recovering from grievous wounds, will come at times to 
look at this enduring tribute to their brother heroes, but this book is 
mainly intended to be a sympathetic record for those who are not able 
to view that dignified memorial to the fallen whom they loved and who 
loved them; it is for the sorrowing whose agony of grief is sacred, and 
whose proud loneliness will end only "when our battalions re-unite.""
