Two wooden honour boards commemorate those from St Giles Presbyterian Church who enlisted in World War One. One of the boards unveiled in 1916 also contains the names of Grammarians who enlisted.

The Rev. John Gray, Moderator of the Presbyteran Assembly of Victoria, conducted special services in the High Street Presbyteran Church on Sunday. In the morning the Moderator unveiled the Geelong Grammarians honour roll, and in the evening the general honour roll, containing the names of members now at the front and formerly connected with the church or school.
