Description

This Roll of Honour featured in the Tasmanian Mail in early 1919. Like many of the Honour Rolls made in the period, its whereabouts are unknown. Interestingly this is a union roll and the continuing divisions in the union movement about the war and how it should be remembered are obvious when one compares this roll and the statements by the Trades Hall Council about a planned memorial for Hobart. Like the rest of society the union movement was split over the war by 1918 and like most social institutions were deeply affected by the departure of members for the front, the death of many prominent unionists and the differences of opinion between returning ex-soldier members and opponents of the war.
The roll carries the names of a number of men commemorated on the Avenue including William Copcutt, R Edwards (probably A R Edwards), W Glennon, W O Jeffrey and H Shearing.
