St Paul`s Cobar Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

St Paul`s Cobar Roll of Honour commemorates those from the church who served in World War One. 

On Sunday evening last, September 18th, during Evening Prayers at St. Paul's Church, Cobar, a memorial and honor board was unveiled and dedicated to the memory of the fallen and in honor of the returned soldiers who participated in the recent war by the Venerable Archdeacon King-Howel, Vicar General of the Diocese of Bathurst. The Archdeacon spoke in  sympathetic and honourable terms of the men who fell and in terms of appreciation of the returned soldiers. He also spoke in a commendatory way of the workmanship so ably and creditably executed. Mr Owen is to be congratulated on this masterpiece of work. The work is made from Australian wood, namely, Beech and Cedar, the dimensions of which are 7 feet by 4 feet. There are three panels of Beech upon which are written eighty names, of which fourteen have fallen. The Board is inscribed— "For God, King and Country,'' and contains a Latin inscriptlon meaning Empire and Liberty.
