Contributed by Stephen Mills: My father Alex Mills was deacon (1945-6) and priest (1946-7) at nearby Swan Marsh. He conducted his first baptism at Pomborneit North in 1944. At the end of the war a lych gate was constructed at the entrance to the church to commemorate a local soldier who had been killed in Bougainville (Charles Cooper Boyd, KIA 17/3/45 aged 22)..
