Categorised under the topic of Sports.

That this House commends the Queen's Park and the Great War project for compiling a complete picture of the club's involvement in the Great War; pays tribute to Queen's Park Football Club for raising awareness and understanding in both the club and the wider community of the impact of the Great War; recognises that more than 220 members and players enlisted for military service and at least 34 of whom lost their life; notes that a number of men who served in the War went on to give valuable service of the club's committee, including four of them who became President of the Club; further recognises that the project confirmed that Queen's Park amateur players volunteered for service in numbers unmatched by other clubs; further notes that the Great War project comes to a conclusion in November 2018 and has achieved its target of ensuring that the Queen's Park men who fought and died in the conflict are not forgotten; and thanks Queen's Park Football Club for this project that has raised awareness and understanding of the men who gave great service to club and country before, during and after the Great War of 1914 to 1918.
