Postmaster-General`s Department Honour RollPrint Page
Honour roll commemorates employees of the Postmaster-General`s Department who served in World War One. It lists 171 names.
A commencement has been made with the erection in the General Post Office of a massive white marble honour roll. It is to contain the names of 180 members of the G.P.O., who enlisted for active service. It was hoped, as the foundation stone of the building was laid by his Majesty the King, and the the chimes were dedicated to the late Queen Victoria, that the Prince of Wales would have unveiled the honour roll, but though this was recommended by the state committee, which is responsible for the programmne during the Prince's visit, it was rejected by the Commonwealth organlser. It is expected that the formal unveiling of the roll will take place in about a month's time.
