Llandilo Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates those from the district who served in World War One. 

On Saturday afternoon last all Llandilo turned up at the Public School to do honor to the brave young men of the district who had cast their home and dear ones behind them and gone to do their duty at their country's call. There was no failing of duty on Saturday, and everyone, young and old, who could possibly get there, put in an appearance, and the small school house proved unable to hold the large concourse of assembled friends and relatives of the boys at the front. The visitors were also numerous.

Mr. Brinsley Hall, the late Member for the district in the State Parliament, and who was entrusted with the duty of unveiling the Honor Roll, was there accompanied by Mr Keegan of Richmond. The Mayor of Castlereagh (Ald Shields) and Ald Landers were there to represent the local council and a highly popular visitor was the former Rector of the Parish, Rev. Harry R A Wilson, now in charge of the Kogarah Parish. Mr Wilson had a number of the young men, whose names were on the Honor Roll, under his spiritual care when in charge of the Parish, and he was welcomed by his old parishioners.
