Scots College War Memorial Chapel was erected in memory of former old boys of the college who died in service or were killed in action during both World Wars. 

The Prime Minister, Mr. Menzies, will set the foundation stone of the War Memorial Chapel at the Scots College at 3.30 p.m. on Saturday. The chapel is to be built to mark the sacrifice of 14 former students who were killed in World War 1 and about 110 who were killed in World War II.

Work will begin immediately on a £45,000 memorial chapel to 105 old boys of Scots College, Bellevue Hill, who were killed in World War II. The design of the chapel was the subject of an architectural competition won by architect F. Glynn Gilling, a member of the Sydney firm of Joseland and Gilling. The chapel will be built by F. R. Wyndham under this firm's supervision. Consulting engineers are Woolacott, Hale and Bond, of Sydney. The chapel's approaches will be from Victoria Road and the school grounds by wide paths and courts, lined by trees. Below the chapel, which will seat 342 people, will be an auditorium to accommodate 224. The auditorium will have a stage, wings, and retiring rooms. A bell tower will be a prominent feature. A bronze honour roll will be fixed in the narthex of the chapel.
