The wooden honour roll commemorates the members of C Company, 2nd / 3rd Machine Gun Battalion who served in World War Two.  The roll lists 44 names.

The 2nd / 3rd Machine Gun Battalion was formed in June 1940 under the command of Lieutenant Colonel Arthur Blackburn, VC. Although raised in South Australia, B Company came from Victoria, C Company came from Tasmania and D Company came from Western Australia. It was not until April 1941, that the whole battalion was brought together as a whole and this was on board the troopship taking them to the Middle East.

Note : the “Tasmanian War Memorials Data Base” , compiled by Fred Thornett which is located at the State Library of Tasmania, contains a comprehensive listing of the names on this honour roll.
