The Roll of Honour consists of individual photos commemorating those from the district who enlisted in World War One. The Honour Roll was originally unveiled in December 1916 with additional photos being added at a later date. 

The Boolaroo Soldiers' Reception Committee met on Wednesday evening to discuss matters relative to the unveiling of the roll of honour. The roll has been held open for some months waiting for photographs of the district volunteers, of whom there are between 130 and 140. To date the committee has only received 95 out of 100 required to fill the first panels. The committee decided that the roll should be closed, and the unveiling ceremony will take place shortly.
