William Anderson

On The Roll of Honour - William Anderson - Kept the Flag Flying
He whom this scroll commemorates was numbered among those who, at the call of King and Country, left all that was dear to them, endured hardness, faced danger, and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self-sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom. Let those who come after see to it that his name be not forgotten

5) "Going up" The Cub Law - Now this is the law of the jungle, as old and as true as the sky, And the Wolf that shall keep it may prosper, but the Wolf that shall break it must die.  The Jackal may follow the Tiger, but Cub, when thy whiskers are grown, Remember the Wolf is a hunter, go forth and get food of thy own.  As the creeper that girdles the tree trunk, the law runneth forward and back. For the strength of the Pack is the Troop, and the strength of the Troop is the Pack. Because of his age and his cunning, because of his grip and his paw.  In all that the Law leaveth open, the word of the Head Wolf is Law.  Now those are the Laws of the Jungle, and many and mighty are they; But the head and the hoof of the Law, and the haunch and the hump is Obey!

3) Saturday 23rd February 1957 - The Youngest V.C. by Peter Croft - Recently 15 year-old Patrol Leader Terry Malone, of the 2nd Greenisland (Orthopaedic Hospital) Troop, was awarded the second Cornwall Badge to come to Northern Ireland in 40 years. Here is the story of the boy after whom the badge was named.
Standing in the Imperial War Museum is an historic naval gun. Beside this same gun, on the misty evening of May 31, 1916, Boy John Travers Cornwell earned the Victoria Cross at the age of 16. The part which John played in the terrible Battle of Jutland will never be forgotten. His job was to set the sights of a big gun in the cruiser H.M.S. Chester, which became the target of three German warships. The British ship was smothered in bursting shells and within five minutes most of her gun-crews were killed or wounded.  John Cornwell stayed by his disabled gun, although terribly wounded and exposed to the enemy fire. "He felt he might be needed," said his captain, "and so he waited with just his own brave heart, and God's help to support him."  The brave boy, who had left an Essex Council School only two years before, was taken to Grimsby Hospital. Nurses asked him how the battle had gone, "Oh, we carried on all right," he answered simply. Boy Cornwall, V.C., knew of our victory and was content. During the 24 hours he remained alive, he said nothing of his own heroism and his last thoughts were of his mother who was hurrying to his bedside. Mrs. Cornwall was later presented with two bronze crosses to mark the bravery of her son. They were the illustrious V.C., and the Bronze Cross which is the highest Boy Scouts' award for gallantry. The youngest-ever V.C. was buried with full military honours, and a general subscription was raised to have his portrait painted. John Cornwall's memory was also perpetuated by the endowment of beds bearing his name in many hospitals.
