A wooden honour roll commemorates 53 service personnel who served in World War One.

On Thursday afternoon, in the presence of a large gathering of residents, the local roll of honour was unveiled by Mrs. A. Dennis, supported by Councillors Spicer and Boys. The roll contains upwards of 50 names, and is a magnificent piece of work. The board is of solid figured blackwood, mounted with the Australian coat of arms and the rising sun, with a plate glass front covering the lettering, which is in gold.
