The wooden honour roll commemorates those from the district who served in World War One. The roll was unveiled at the opening of the hospital on the 14th April 1923. 

Murray Bridge residents are proud of the record of the war service of its sons, but the present record which does duty as a roll of honour, is nothing to be proud of. An examination of the board will show that one portion of it, the earlier list, shows the names of the soldiers as clearly as on the day the names were written thereon, but the other portion is becoming an undistinguishable blur, and some of the names are undecipherable. Residents, however, will be pleased to learn that the committee of the Soldiers' Memorial Hospital have accepted the tender of Messrs. Pengelley of Adelaide, for the erection of a roll of honor at the hospital, and this should be ready for the opening of the establishment some time in April next.
