Photographs supplied by John Huth

A wooden honour roll commemorates those from the Wison's Creek Huonbrook district who served in World War Two.

His invitation to be present was a compliment to Mullumbimby, declared the Mayor of Mullumbimby (Ald E.G.Davies), when performing the ceremony of unveiling the Wilson's Creek- Huonbrook Roll of Honor in Wilson`s Creek hall. The roll contains the names of 36 men who offered their services in the 1939-45 war. For each war loan floated a pennant was how hanging in the Mullumbimby Council Chambers, said Ald Davies, and it was centres such as Wilson's Creek-Huonbrook and other district centres that had made this possible by their generous contributions to each loan. To those whose names appeared on the board he extended his congratulations, for they were the men who endured most during the conflict. 

No chain was stronger than its weakest link said Mr W. Bouveret (President of Mullumbimby Sub-branch of the RSSAILA) and in Australia there were thousands of Wilson's Creeks, just small country areas, where people carried on with the job of building a nation. To him, Wilson's Creek was symbolic of Australia.
