This Honour Roll was kept at the Scout Hall that Frederick Waterhouse (father of 3 sons on the roll) built in his garden at 42 Irvine Street, Cottesloe.
It was housed there until c1925 when Frederick Waterhouse moved from his property to his sons farm at Goomalling, WA. Its location from then until 1998 is unknown, but was possibly based at Mosman Park Scout Hall until last seen there by Bob Waterhouse in 1998, after which it disappeared, between then and 2012 when looking for it to restore for the 100th anniversary.
Fortunately we had a tinted photograph of the original. From this Bob Waterhouse sought the help of the Superintendent, Kerri Bishop, of Bunbury Regional Prison. The New Roll was made in the Prison Cabinet Shop by the prisoners.

The replacement Roll is now housed at the Cottesloe Community and Scout Hall at 65 Eric Street, Cottesloe WA.
