04/07/2016 2nd Lieut Donald James Grubb From the Belfast Newsletter dated 24th August 1915: The Late Lieutenant D J Grubb – Memorial Service in Belfast
04/07/2016 2nd Lieut Donald James Grubb 00875
04/07/2016 2nd Lieut Donald James Grubb A memorial service in connection with the death in action at the Dardanelles of Lieutenant Donald J Grubb, 5th Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, the only son of Rev James Grubb, the well-known Methodist minister, was held in Donegall Square Methodist Church on Sunday. Rev Thomas Davis occupied the pulpit, which was suitably draped. The preacher took for his subject ‘For to me to live is Christ and to die is gain.’ He said that in the case of Donald Grubb, they did not sorrow as those who had no hope. He early in life grasped the true Christian ideals of life. Brought up in a home where the dominant note had always been ‘To live is Christ’, it was not to be wondered that he always displayed in a quiet way those high Christian characteristics which made his short life so attractive. In the early days of the war, having a high sense of duty, he felt he ought to offer himself for service in the just cause of his country. In September last he joined the O.T.C. Queens University, obtaining his commission later in the 5th Royal Inniskilling Fusiliers, and at once threw himself wholeheartedly into the work of training. He specialised in signalling, and attended a special course in this branch, being later appointed signalling officer. He was only five weeks at the front on Sunday 15th, the day on which he was killed in action, the sad news reaching his parents on Friday. One of the outstanding features to be admired in Donald Grubb was his deep affection for his parents and sisters and his love for home. In his last letter he seemed to be delighted at the prospect of receiving the home letters on his arrival at Gallipoli. At the conclusion of the sermon, the congregation rose and silently expressed their sympathy with Mr and Mrs Grubb and family in their great loss. The organist then played the Dead March in ‘Saul’. It may be mentioned that 61 sons of Methodist ministers have joined the colours have joined the colours since the outbreak of war, and Lieutenant D J Grubb is the first son of the manse to be killed in action.
