Photographs supplied by Arthur Garland

A framed paper honour roll commemorates those who served in World War One.  It lists 54 names.

A very successful send-off was given to another St. Leonards lad, Mr. Norman Peck, who has volunteered for active service. Occasion was also taken to unveil the roll of honour, the result of a local subscription, and which now hangs on the wall of the St. Leonards Hall as a memorial of the brave boys who have sacrificed home comforts and friends and gone out to flight for King and country. 

The ceremony of unveiling was efficiently performed by the wife of the Warden (Mr. W. J. Connell), who in a few appropriate words expressed the pleasure both he and Mrs. Connell felt at being present and having such a duty conferred on them.
