Immediately after action, units and brigades arranged memorial
services to commemorate the fallen and give thanks for preservation. It made little difference whether these services were compulsory or voluntary. They were always well attended and the
spirit was wonderful. Indeed all Church services in the Division
were popular and well supported. In the training periods some
chaplains kept the services voluntary, while others made them official
parades. It made little difference, for if the men respected the
chaplain they would go willingly to Church, and a bad chaplain
did not last long in the Division.
