Many Peaks Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

Many Peaks Roll of Honour honours those from the district who served in World War One.

After a tour in the Many Peak's and Cannindah districts, the Minister for Mines (Mr. A. Jones) today spoke glowingly of the mineral wealth of that portion of the State. Mr. Jones added that a big handicap was the lack of railway communication. Of the bad roads along which teamsters had to travel, Mr Jones had personal experience. While returning from Cannindah to Many Peaks he saw a waggon loaded with five tons of ore overturned in a gully in the foothills of the Dawes Range. An honor board containing the names of men who had gone from the Many Peaks district was unveiled by the Minister.
