Photographs supplied by Arthur Garland

The honour roll commemorates 186 service personnel from the Upper Derwent District who served in World War One.  It was originally unveiled at the hall 17th December 1916 with additional names being added at a later date. 

The ceremony of unveiling the roll of honour, which has been placed in the Upper Derwent United Hall, Bushy Park, in honour of those who are on active service in the great war and of those who have already fallen in the conflict, took place on Sunday afternoon. Mr. W. E. Shoobridge, M.H.A., performed the ceremony, and mentioned that there were 159 names on the roll, 11 who have died on active service.  The roll of honour was made and painted by Mr. Needham, of Hobart, and reflects great credit on him. The board is of plain polished blackwood, with gold lettering.
