Balliang & District Honour Roll Print Page Print this page

A photographic honour roll commemorates those who served in World War One.

The unveiling of the Balliang honor board was arranged to take place on Monday. 29th inst., but owing to its clashing with the final welcome home in Bacchus Marsh, whence most of their performers are expected, it was thought advisable to postpone it until March 31st. The board which is a beautiful piece of work by Mr Briggs, of Geelong has 31 names on it with the photographs of all but three of the soldiers let in with their name and rank beautifully inscribed beneath.
Ballarat Star (Vic), 25 March 1920.
