A wooden honour roll commemorates former pupils of the Wannon School and those from the district who served in World War One.

A handsome roll of honour has just been designed and executed to the order of the people of Wannon by Messrs. T. O'Halloran and Sons, of Hamilton, and is on view in the window of Messrs. George and O'Neill, The Don, Gray-street. The board, which is constructed of various fancy Australian timbers and highly finished in ther natural state, contains the names of 34 heroes-21 past pupils of the Wannon school, and 14 district enlistments-written in gold on a gold bordered panel. Messrs. T. O'Halloran and Sons have constructed quite a number of honour rolls for the district, and their work has been greatly admired.
