The roll was constructed of beautiful Tasmanian hardwood. The chairman then called on the Warden (Mr. G. E. Archer) to unveil the roll and he in turn after a short address asked Mr. W. Hills, who had three sons at the front to raise the flag.The meeting closed with hearty cheers for the King and boys away, and the Benediction.
