University of Adelaide Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates those from the University of Adelaide who served in World War One.

Students in the University and the colleges have been among the first to respond to the stirring appeal to arms. Thinking not of consequence, following only the desire of youth for action and honour, they have been ready to leave their books and go to the front. South Australia`s sons are playing their part and some evidence of it was given on Wednesday afternoon at the commemoration service at the University of Adelaide. To complete the ceremony, Sir Samuel Way supplied a grand roll of honour of the men who had gone from the University to fight as officers and as privates in the ranks —52 of them.
