Wallaroo Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

Wallaroo Roll of Honour commemorates those from the district who served in World War One.

It has been decided at Wallaroo to establish a roll of honour, and the names of all men who go to the war from that town will be placed thereon. Cr. Hotten brought forward the matter at a council meeting. He stated that the town had not officially bidden farewell to any of the 37 men who had left, and suggested that something might be done in future. The Mayor agreed that the idea was a capital one, and regretted that no opportunity had been given to wish the "boys" goodbye. It was arranged that the Mayor and Cr. Hotten should be a committee to arrange for "sendoffs" to any of the lads who may leave for the war after this date. The roll of honour will be exhibited in the council chamber.
The Register (Adelaide), 9 March 1915.
