First Nambour Boy Scouts Honour BoardPrint Page Print this page

First Nambour Boy Scouts Honour Board honours those who served in World War One and World War Two.
The Honour Board was unveiled in the Scouts Hall on the 8th August 1947 by Mr. D. A. Low M.L.A.  Names honoured were those who at one time belonged to the Scouts and covered enlistments in both the 1st and 2nd A.I.F. The honour board was worked and fashioned by Mr W. Lees and the lettering and embellishments by Mr. A.P.Dowd. Heading the brightly polished board is a setting of a Scout camp, and the centrepiece at the foot of the board is the representation of a campfire. The portion on which the names are inscribed has a glass cover and at each side are deigned Scout emblems significant of the purposes and objectives of scouting.
