A wooden honour roll commemorates members of the Wollomombi Lodge who served in World War Two.

An Honour Roll of members of Wollomombi M.U.I.O.O.F. who served in World War II has been unveiled. The unveiling ceremony was performed by the New England District Grand Master (Bro. N. J. McRae) who paid a glowing tribute to those who served.  Bro. McRae was supported by Cr. B. Browning, who was president of the Wollomombi Soldiers' Welfare Associations during the war.  At the conclusion of the unveiling, Bro. McRae hung a wreath on the Honour Roll in memory of Sister G. M. Sauer, the only lodge member who paid the supreme sacrifice. As the wreath was hung the assembly observed a minute's silence in Sister Sauer's memory and the ceremony concluded with the playing of the National Anthem by W. Frizell. The roll contains the names of 20 members of the lodge.
