Drysdale State School Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The Honour Roll honours former pupils of the school who served in World War One.

The State School honor roll, which is to be unveiled this (Thursday) afternoon at 2 o'clock by Brigadier-General Williams, C.M.G., State Commandant, contains no less than 78 names (alphabetically arranged) of district men who owe their early tuition to S.S. No. 1645. Two, out of the total number, are unfortunately prisoners of war in Turkey and Germany respectively, but the remainder, with the exception of a few, are still helping gallantly in Egypt and on the blood-stained soil of France to roll back the yet formidable lines of a ruthless invader. A large attendance is anticipated at this most unique and important ceremony. Dr. F. J. Pacey, one time surgeon captain of R.G.A., has kindly promised to take the chair.
