Woodville Roll of HonourPrint Page
Woodville Roll of Honour is a marble roll commemorating those from the district who died in service or were killed in action during World War One and World War Two. The honour roll was originally unveiled in 1916 and contained six names. Additional names were added to the roll at later dates.
The unveiling of the Woodville district's rolls of honor took place in the School of Arts on Tuesday evening last, Anzac Day. The marble slab set up to honor the memory of the brave boys who have fallen in service of their King and Country was unveiled by Mrs. Read, mother of the first local boy who fell, and the roll of volunteers was unveiled by Mrs. Croaker.
Splendid addresses suitable to such an occasion were given by the chairman of proceedings, Mr. P. McDonnell, Venerable Archdeacon Regg and Messrs R. F. Read, D. Ferry, president of Largs Patriotic Committee, Councillor J. Graham, president of Port Stephens Shire Council, and J. R. Butler. The memorial tablet is of fine marble, of plain yet pretty design and is set up most effectively.
