Fire Underwriters Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The Fire Underwriters Honour Roll is a framed photograph of the original roll which is missing. The roll commemorates those who served in World War One and was originally unveiled in 1916.

Many officers on the staffs of fire insurance companies in Adelaide have enlisted, and are now members of the Australian Imperial Forces. An honour roll board has recently been hung in the rooms of the Underwriters' Association, on which appear the names ot 50 men. On Friday, in the presence of a large and enthusiastic gathering of managers and employees, Mr. Tom Steele (Chairman of the Association) unveiled a handsome tablet. Patriotic addresses were delivered, and hearty cheers given for the men.
The Register (Adelaide), 31st May 1916.
