Front Inscription

Tasmania`s World War One Roll of Honour, 1914 - 1918

The names of 3165 soldiers, sailors and airmen who were Tasmanian by birth or residence and died from their service in WW1 are commemorated on these walls.  Their names appear alphabetically, grouped by the year of death.  These men served with Australian, New Zealand and British units.

"What these men did nothing can alter now.  The good and the bad, the greatness and the smallness of their story will stand. Whatever of glory it contains nothing now can lessen.  It rises, as it will always rise, above the mists of ages, a monument to great hearted men ; and for their nation, a possession forever. "

Quote from Charles Bean, author of the Australian World War One Official History.

This wall is itself a tribute to those great-hearted Tasmanian men and a reminder to their State of the legacy they left it.  It was completed in 2015 by the St Helens - St Marys RSL Sub branch with funding from :

The Commonwealth of Australia, "Centenary of ANZAC" program
The Tasmanian Community Fund
The Break O`Day Council Community Fund
The Rotary Club of St Helens and Tasmania
