08/02/2020 L/Bombdr Thomas Hugh Lennox During Mr Lennox’s term as officer in charge of the Cadet Training college, among those passing out was his younger brother, now Captain H H Lennox, who laboured for some time in England, and is now in charge of three Church Army Mobile Canteens operating in Northern Ireland among His Majesty’s and Allied Forces. At Easter 1935, Mr Lennox was married to Miss B J Earl of Luton.
08/02/2020 L/Bombdr Thomas Hugh Lennox The Rev W J Lennox, of the Church Army, was ordained to the priesthood on 29th September by the Archbishop of Toronto, Primate of All Canada. A son of the late Mr Hugh Lennox and Mrs Lennox of Castledawson, the young clergyman received his early education at Moyola Park School and at the Rainey School. In June 1926, he entered the Church Army Training College and later as Church Army Chaplain, laboured with great success in England. For years he was Evangelist-in-charge of the Derry and Raphoe Diocesan Church Army Mission Van, spending the greater part of that time in County Donegal. For another two years he was officer-in-charge of cadets at the Headquarters Training College. In March 1936, at the early age of 28 years, he was appointed general secretary and chief executive officer of the Church Army in Canada for a five year period, during which time he travelled about 500,000 miles, and so developed the work in the dominion that it became self-supporting. The authorities were very anxious that he would continue this work for a further period, but having felt the call to take Holy Orders, he became a minister. Having been accepted as a candidate and passing the requisite examinations, he was ordained a deacon in May 1941, and placed in charge of the parish of Coboconk, 100 miles north east of Toronto.
