No Names to be Read in Doughboy Ceremony

Share this post

Today is the final Friday of the month, the day of the Hobart Marine Corps League “Howlin' Mad Detachment Number 93” Doughboy ceremony – where the names of fallen soldiers for the month are read out loud – and for the first time in three-and-a-half-years, there are no names to read – they will still have an opening prayer- followed by a small announcement- and a volley of 3 rounds with the playing of taps and closing prayer. The public as always is invited to the service which starts at 5pm at the Hobart Doughboy statue, at 7th and Main.   Doughboy was a term used to describe U-S infantrymen of the American Expeditionary Force during World War One.
