Who were these soldiers?


When the Johnnycake Center thrift store in Westerly came upon a hand-lettered roster of men serving in the Army, Navy and Marines, they figured there was no better person to give it to than Roberta Humble, who lives in Conimicut and has been president of the Westerly Armory for 26 years. Humble was interested, although from what she could tell this was not a list of Westerly men, but more likely Warwick soldiers as a notation on the sheet reads, “designed for Cecil Hopkins, Postmaster Hoxsie.” Apart from the insignias of the three branches of service, there’s no indication of what period the men served. Humble assumes it is from World War I. Among the scores of names are those of Robert A. Maymon, Herbert Knott and Robert Allen Reed. It also bears the name, Trudy M. White, Conimicut, who Humble presumes compiled the list. Humble plans to give the list to the Warwick Historical Society. (Warwick Beacon photo)
