Roma & Shire of Bungil Honour BoardPrint Page Print this page

Roma & Shire of Bungil Honour Board commemorates those who served in World War One.

The roll contains five panels with over 700 names being recorded with the centre panel containing the names of those who died in service or were killed in action during the conflict. 

The honour board was presented to Roma Town Council and Bungil Shire Council by Alderman Crawford and erected in the Roma Town Hall. At the beginning of the war a small honour board was erected in the Town Hall but it was found to be inadequate because of the number of men who had enlisted from the district. The roll was unveiled on the 11th November 1921 by Colonel Bourne.
