The wooden honour roll commemorates those from the district who served in World War One, World War Two and the Vietnam War.

JONDARYAN, November 21. The names to be enrolled on the Jondaryan honour board so far number 43 but is it is intended to include all volunteers in the Jondaryan police district, this number will be considerably augmented.
Brisbane Courier (Qld.), 22 November 1916.


The unveiling ceremony of the Jondaryan honour board was performed by Mr. A. E. Moore, M.L.A., at the railway station on Friday in the presence of a large and representative gathering. Mr. T. Taylor (chairman of the Honour Board Committee), in introducing Mr. Moore, said they were assembled to commemorate the names and deeds of those heroes who had responded to the Empire's call. Mr. Moore, in unveiling the board, stated that the names of those inscribed on it were the names of men who had sacrificed home and pleasure that we might be free citizens. (Hear, hear.) They had to bear the brunt of the burden, yet people at home quarrelled and disagreed over trivial matters; disregarding the terrible ordeal they were now going through.  He hoped that the future for the returned boys would be a recompense for their heroism and suffering. If we could not guarantee them a fair deal, then we ought to give them an extra vote for their services to the Empire. (Applause)  The other speakers included Mr. A. G. Sutton, one of whose three soldier sons has been killed. The names on the roll are given in order of enlistment.
