    27July2James, often called 'the Great', was a Galilean fisherman who, with his brother John, was one of the first apostles called by Jesus to follow him. The two brothers were with Jesus at his Transfiguration and with him again in the garden of Gethsemane. They annoyed the other followers of Jesus by asking to sit one on his left and the other on his right when he came into his glory and they were present for the appearances of Christ after the resurrection. James was put to death by the sword on the order of Herod Agrippa, who hoped in vain that, by disposing of the Christian leaders, he could stem the flow of those hearing the good news and becoming followers in the Way. James' martyrdom is believed to have taken place in the year 44.

    First World War State Memorial Service

    A Service to mark the Centenary of the Outbreak of the First World War

    Two Minutes’ Silence

    “Owing to the summary rejection by the German Government of the request made by His Majesty’s Government for assurances that the neutrality of Belgium would be respected, … His Majesty’s Government has declared to the German Government that a state of war exists between Great Britain and Germany as from 11pm on August 4th.”
    The British Foreign Office

    3August2Using the Royal Prerogative, the King-Emperor George V, had assented to war with Germany. Australian Prime Minister, Joseph Cook, understood this to mean that the entire Empire, including Australia, was at war with Germany.

    3August3Winston Churchill, in London, gave this account:
    “It was eleven o’clock at night – twelve by German time – when the ultimatum expired. The windows of the Admiralty were thrown wide open in the warm night air. Under the roof from which Nelson had received his orders were gathered a small group of admirals and captains and a cluster of clerks, pencils in hand, waiting. Along the Mall from the direction of the Palace the sound of an immense concourse singing ‘God save the King’ flouted in. On this deep wave there broke the chimes of Big Ben; and, as the first stroke of the hour boomed out, a rustle of movement swept across the room. The war telegram, which meant, “Commence hostilities against Germany”, was flashed to the ships and establishments under the White Ensign all over the world.”

    On 5 August, Australia fired its first shot in World War I at Fort Nepean in Victoria. The German merchant ship Pfalz was leaving Port Phillip Bay at 12.10am when news of involvement in the War had just reached the fort. The battery fired shots across its bows forcing the ship to surrender. This is believed to be the first shot fired in anger by British Empire forces during the war.

    This service is part of a series of Cathedral events marking the centenary of the First World War.
