Description

Wooden Honour Board with brass name plates

The Wickepin District Roll of Honour was unveiled on ANZAC Day 1918 by Master Mervyn Cooke and Ivy Fisher. Mervyn's father Lieutenant Cooke was killed at the Gallipoli landing while Ivy's only brother was a prisoner of war in Germany. The roll contained the names of 238 of whom 20 per cent made the supreme sacrifice. The roll was incomplete at the time of the unveiling. The honour board of polished jarrah was crafted by Messrs, Bunning Brothers of Perth.
The West Australian (Perth), 14th May 1918.

The original wooden WW1 Memorial is located inside the Wickepin Town Hall and only accessible by obtaining a key from the Shire of Wickepin. This Memorial was unveiled in April 1918 and it is therefore incomplete and also has a lot of mistakes on it, such as spelling and KIA markers in the wrong places.
