From the Belfast Newsletter dated 10th June 1915: Dungannon L.O.L. No. 1620
Holdfast L.O.L. No. 1620 met in the Orange Hall on Monday, Bro. James Nixon, W.M., presiding, assisted by Bro. McConnell in the vice-chair. The secretary reported that twenty-six of their members were at present in the army. The W. Master expressed in fitting terms the feelings of the lodge toward these patriotic brethren and expressed the hope that the war will soon be ended and that their military brethren will be restored to them safe and sound. Communications from America were dealt with and the lodge was closed.
