The Honour Roll next to the pulpit, commemorates the members of the 14th / 32nd Infantry Battalion who died in service or were killed in action during World War Two.

The Battalion was formed in September 1942 by the amalgamation of the 14th and 32nd and was assigned to the 6th Brigade, 4th Division in Geraldton, Western Australia.   The battalion served firstly in Australia and then later New Guinea being employed mainly on garrison duties, before being transferred to the 5th Division and deployed to New Britain late in the war where it took part briefly in the containment campaign on that island. In April 1945 it returned to Australia for rest and re-organisation and was disbanded later that year without seeing further combat.
