ROLL OF HONOR

(Plaque)
The Edwardstown & District Roll of Honour was created in 1918 "to honour the memory of the men from Edwardstown who have enlisted with the A.I.F." Commissioned by the Edwardstown Institute Committee it was unveiled on Saturday 24th August 1918 in the Edwardstown Institute Hall.
Built by Edwardstown's Pengelley Furniture Factory, the ornate board is constructed of beautifully polished blackwood. At its completion it measured 8 by 7 1/2 feet, and bore the names of nearly 200 soldiers and one nurse. More names were added to the board over time.
For decades the board hung in the Edwardstown Institute Hall on South Road. When the Hall was demolished in 1989 the board was moved to the Warradale Army Barracks where it was respectfully looked after for nearly 30 years.
