Two identically styled polished wooden honour boards either side of the western wall of the nave.  At the top is a carved representation of the Australian Imperial Force (A.I.F.) badge between the flags of Australia and Britain and on either side of the flags are sprigs of wattle.

On  Sunday 28th October 1917, in the presence of a large congregation at Christ Church, North Adelaide. His Excellency the Governor (Sir Henry Galway), who was attended by Capt. Brown unveiled two rolls of honour. These had been placed at the west end of the church, filling in the wall space on either side of the west window. The rolls are of blackwood, and bear the flags and badge of the A.I.F. carved in relief on upper panels. Beneath each of these are three panels, on which the names of those who have gone on service abroad are inscribed. One roll contains the names of 139 men who have enlisted from the parish and the other those of 99 past members and 30 sons and husbands of parishioners who enlisted while away from the parish. Of these 48, whose names are recorded, have given their lives.
