Caragabal & District Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates those who served in World War Two.

Any travellers along the State Highway to Adelaide last night would have wondered what it was all about out on the Bland. The occasion was the switching on of the electricity from Grenfell, and a great crowd had gathered for the occasion, many Grenfell visitors being present, and the Grenfellf Band was in attendance, acquitting themselves very well; — we heard some very favourable comments about their playing. The Mayor of Grenfell (Ald. Selwyn) officially switched on the lights, and also unveiled the Honor Board and dedicated curtains to the memory of the men who fell, in the defence of their country in the 1939-45 war .

Ald. Selwyn said he also considered it a very great honor to be invited to unveil and dedicate the several memorials to the men of Caragabal district who served their country in the last world war. "I now," he continued, "dedicate these curtains to the memory of the men who fell in the defence of their country in the last war and may we forever cherish their memory." "The Last Post" was sounded by Messrs. O'Dwyer and Les Brown. He then unveiled the Honor Boards in recognition of the men and women of the district who served in the defence of their country in the 1939-45 war. In conclusion, he said, he would like to commend the spirit, and action of the people of Caragabal district which prompted the provision of these very fine memorials, and ask that the trustees of this public hall take charge of them and preserve them for generations to come.
