District of Crystal Brook Roll of Honour commemorates those who served in World War One.

The District of Crystal brook Honour Roll was presented to the town by Mesdames J and R Forgan and unveiled on 'Australia Day' , 1916. The tablet is of copper, set on blackwood and measures 3ft.9in x 2ft.9inch. Each name is embossed on letters of brass, the list being headed Lieut-Col A. Miell.
The Register (Adelaide), 3rd August 1916.

Note : - During the First World War, the concept of a national ‘Australia Day’ was instead part of a wider fundraising plan where money was raised by declaring a special ‘day’ on which events such as auctions, stalls, performances and street collections were held to encourage the community to contribute to the war effort.  'Australia Day ' was celebrated in South Australia on the 28th July 1916.
