Coburg AOF Tent Honour RollPrint Page Print this page

The honour roll commemorates members of the Ancient Order of Foresters who served in World War One.

Note : Originating in England in the mid eighteenth century, Foresters Friendly Society began life as The Ancient Order of Foresters. The first recorded instance of a Foresters meeting being held was in Leeds in 1834. In Australia, the first branch of the Order (known as a Court) was established in Victoria in 1849.

Foresters was originally a non-profit organisation with a mission to provide financial and social support to members and their families in times of hardship.
