Description

The Isis District War Memorial and Council Chambers is a one story masonry building, and the western wing of the building accommodates the War Memorial room. The War Memorial is entered via a sloping ramp and through a pair of tall, timber panelled doors. Dark timber honour boards stretch across all four walls of the room. There are two boards on the eastern wall, the upper one is in memory of the men who died in action in World War Two and is surmounted by an ornate timber pediment. The lower boards are in memory of the men who died in World War One. The boards are inscribed with gilt lettering and have a row of copper plaques mounted upon them. Each plaque is dedicated to the memory of an individual soldier and is embossed with the years of the war, the badge of the Australian Imperial Force and an oval-shaped photograph of the soldier framed by a pair of weeping women and the words “in memory of”. The soldiers’ names are engraved on small plaques below. The plaques for World War One are brass and for World War Two, chrome. The room is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register.
