Macleay River District Honour Roll Print Page
The Hon. J. D Fitzgerald talked in considerable length, and spoke in appreciative terms of the Macleay district's fine record as shown by the Honour Board that day, eighty-three fine lads having made the last sacrifice. Mr. Fitzgerald then introduced Mrs. Joseph Simon, a sister of Ald. William O`Meara, and the mother of the first Macleay soldier to lose his life on active service in the war. He would ask Mrs Simon to unveil the Honour Board.
