Claremont Honour Roll commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The original roll was unveiled to commemorate those who served in World War One with additional panels being added to the board to commemorate those who served in World War Two, Korea and Vietnam.

There was a strong rally of the people of the Claremont district to witness the unveiling of the Claremont honour board on Saturday afternoon. The board, which is of carved blackwood, adorns the wall of the local State school.  The unveiling ceremony was performed by Hon. J. W. Evans, C.M.G., M.H.A.  The names inscribed upon the board were then read, and one minute of silence was observed in their memory, during which period the flag was half masted.
