Woodville Volunteers Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The framed paper honour roll commemorates those who served in World War One. The original Volunteers Roll was unveiled on ANZAC Day 1916 and contained 20 names with additional names being added at a later date. 

The roll is surmounted by the Australian Coat of Arms and Australian National and Union Jack flags. 

The unveiling of the Woodville district's rolls of honor took place in the School of Arts on Tuesday evening last, Anzac Day.  The marble slab set up to honor the memory of the brave boys who have fallen in service of their King and Country was unveiled by Mrs. Read, mother of the first local boy who fell, and the roll of volunteers was unveiled by Mrs. Croaker. The roll is of moleskin on which are the Australian Coat of Arms, hand-painted, and the names of volunteers who havo gone on active service, set in a polished oak frame. It is of handsome and artistic finish throughout.
