Wooden Honour Board with turned wooden pillars

In 1947 the Townsville City Council commissioned Townsville cabinet making company Harvey and Clark to build this Honour Board to be housed in the Old City Hall in Flinders Street.
Like the World War One Honour Board, the board is made entirely of North Queensland timbers; silky oak, cedar and Bean tree.
The Honour Board lists the names of people from Townsville and the surrounding communities who served during World War Two. Names have also been added in the right-hand panel for those who served in Korea, Malaya, Borneo and Vietnam.
The names of people killed in action are indicated by KIA or DOAS or DOW after their name on the plaque.
In July 1969 the Honour Boards were extensively damaged by a fire that went through the City Hall. After the fire the council dismantled the boards to rebuild the city hall.
In 1976 the council chambers were moved to new buildings in Walker Street and the boards were with the RSL ‘to utilise and restore’.
In February 1978, a fire much worse than the first gutted the building storing the boards, with both the WW1 and WW2 boards being damaged.
Taken to Lavarack Barracks they were restored and then mounted in their present location in Jezzine Barracks in 1981.
Now, as museum artefacts, they are kept conserved, and can neither be altered, added to or amended.
