The Guild of St. Barnabas: A Guild which, after the Armistice, organized parties from Great Britain to visit the graves of their dead across the channel. Founded by the Rev. M. Mullineux, MC, who originally worked his way as a deck-hand from San Francisco to New Zealand to join the forces. St. Barnabas was "The Son of Consolation." In 1923 upwards of 2,000 poor relatives of the fallen were taken to France and Flanders under the auspices of the Guild.[1]
