The wooden honour roll commemorates members of the Parish who served in World War One.

For some months past the parishioners of St. Patrick's, West Adelaide, have been busy in preparing a roll of honour to mark their esteem and regard for the Catholic boys of the parish who have "done their bit." The movement in charge of the local branch of the Catholic Federation and of the local church committee will be finalised next Wednesday evening at 8 o'clock in St. Patricks Park, when his Grace the Archbishop, in response to an invitation from the parish, will perform the unveiling ceremony and deliver an address.

The Premier (Hon. A. T. Peake), the.Leader of the Opposition (Hon. A. A. Kirkpatrick), the Military Command and (Brigadier-General J. K. Forsyth) have signified their intention of being present, and of speaking on the occasion. A grand musical programme, headed by the. Military Band of the 78th Battalion, will enliven the proceedings. The board, of local design and manufacture, is a work of art, and will be permanently fixed in the Baptistry St. Patrick's Church.
