A wooden honour roll commemorates those from the district who served in World War One.

The Bridgewater and District Honor Roll which had been donated by Mr. J.B. Howe was unveiled on Sunday afternoon in the Mechanics Institute in the presence of a good attendance. Mr. J. J. Embury presided.  Mr. A. Hicks unveiled the honor roll. He said there were 48 names on the roll, and every one was a hero.  Sixteen of those on the honor board would never return.
