Kildonan Presbyterian Home Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates the "old boys" from the Kildonan Presbyterian Home who served in World War One. 

It is a polished and carved wooden board with a centre panel containing a mosaic of a saintly knight. The honour roll originally came from the Kildonan Presbyterian Homes for Children in the Melbourne suburb of Collingwood and is now displayed in the Melbourne Museum.

A memorial panel, presented by Miss Currie, to the memory of the "old boys" of Kildonan Presbyterian Home who have enlisted, has been unveiled by the Rev. Dr. Marshall, of Scots Church. The panel contains the names of 36 soldiers and three naval seamen, of whom one have been killed and several wounded.
