Northern Territory Soldiers Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

Northern Territory Soldiers Roll of Honour is a bronze honour board surmounted by a globe on top of which are a lion and a kangaroo. The roll contains the names of soldiers who were killed in action in World War One. A plaque is affixed to the bottom of the board and commemorates all those gave their lives and all who served in World War Two.

A meeting was convened on the 11th January 1918 by Mr Stretton to consider the establishment of a Roll of Honour of Northern Territory Soldiers who had fallen in the Great War. It was decided at the meeting that subscriptions should be limited to five shillings so that every resident may have an opportunity to contribute.
