Table Cape Municipality Roll of HonourPrint Page
The Table Cape Municipality Roll of Honour is a rare honour roll in a frame, which contains a watercolour painting of Table Cape, and is also decorated with flags of some of the Allied countries in World War One. The roll lists the names of 505 persons who served in the conflict.
In the presence of a large and representative gathering the Roll of Honour for the Table Cape municipality was unveiled on Saturday afternoon in the Council Chambers at Wynyard. After the singing of the National Anthem, the Warden said the honour roll, which was to be unveiled that day, was intended to be a record of the names of all men who enlisted from the district. He had great pleasure in asking Mrs. C. E. Stutterd— who had been a resident for over 50 years— to unveil the Roll of Honour, and Mr. C. J. Mackenzie to assist. Mrs. Stutterd then drew aside the flags draping the roll, the audience applauding and singing "God Save Our Splendid Men." Mr. C. J. Mackenzie said it was with feelings of pride and sorrow he spoke. Their sympathy was with those who had lost relatives. There were 505 names on the roll; 80 or 90 had made the supreme sacrifice.
