The Honour Roll from the Loyal King Edward Lodge of Wee Waa commemorates those who served in World War One. The Honour Roll is located on the War Memorial. 

The ceremony of unveiling the handsome honor roll erected in esteem of the soldier brethren of Loyal King Edward Lodge, Wee Waa was performed in the Oddfellows Hall last week. I.P.G.M. Bro. Withers was chairman. When the cord was pulled aside there was revealed a handsome marble tablet, in two colours, with a mosaic base. Bro. Boyle pointed out that the 20 names represented 22½ per cent. of the total strength of the lodge, and when those ineligible were taken into consideration it would really mean a 50 per cent. enlistment.
