A wooden honour roll commemorates members who died in service or were killed in action during World Wars One and Two. The roll was originally unveiled in 1924 to commemorate those who lost their lives in World War One with a tribute added to the roll at a later date to commemorate those who lost their lives in World War Two. 

The memorial to those members of the United Service Club who made the supreme sacrifice in the Great War of 1914 - 1918 will be unveiled by his Excellency the Governor (Sir Matthew Nathan) on Wednesday, August 13, at 7.30 p.m.  As it is the desire of the club president and committee to invite to the ceremony a relative or relatives of each member whose name is inscribed on the memorial it will be appreciated if the names and addresses of such relatives be forwarded to the club secretary, 70 George Street City, not later than August 6, in order that invitations may be forwarded.
