Mudgeeraba District Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

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

The Mudgeeraba District Roll of Honour was unveiled at the railway station by Mr.J.G.Appel M.L.A on the 29th March 1919 in the presence of a large number of residents. Mudgeeraba had sent away 43 men of whom 7 had paid the supreme sacrifice. Mr Appel paid tribute to the Barton Brothers, twins who were killed on the same day. Mr Appel also stated that it was the duty of the State to do the best for the soldiers who had returned.

He regretted that the best agricultural and grazing lands had not been opened to them as they had been met by the growth of Bolshevism and slackers. He said the soldiers were determined to see that the State and Commonwealth Governments did their duty and that the law was observed. The soldiers had made it plain that they were a force to be reckoned with and that their sacrifices had not been in vain.
