Shire of Wyangarie Roll of HonourPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates those from the Shire of Wyangarie who served in World War One.

The Honour Roll was unveiled under the auspices of the Wyangerie Shire Council on ANZAC Day 1920 by Lieutenant Ted Sloan. Lieutenant Sloan had previously made a rousing speech in regard to the treatment of returned men by the Shire Council and other "flag-flappers". He stated that he was in Villers-Bretonneux and to find the shops open on Anzac Day in Richmond was a disgrace.

He considered it his duty to close them and went round and informed the shopkeepers if they did not close he would organise a company of "diggers" for that purpose. The shops were then shut.
