Description

Metallic honour roll with gold coloured lettering and bronze background. Geelong College crest with pegasus and latin inscription is in the title. Theatres of war are draped around the left column and Australian military branches on the right along with leaves and floral emblems.

Containing the names of 522 old boys who served in the European war, including 87 who fell, a handsome roll of honor was unveiled in the Norman Morrison Hall at Geelong College on June 8 (sic). Lord Stradbroke, the Governor, in performing the ceremony, said he had no doubt that many of those who had fallen would have been leaders of men had they been spared. A duty devolved upon those who were left. He hoped that the present Geelong Collegians would live up to the spirit which the names of the old boys on the honor roll had handed down to them. Before he left for Melbourne, Lord Stradbroke was photographed in a group of the present boys.

The Board was presented to the College by the Old Boys Association on the date of the old collegians' annual reunion.

The honour board is now displayed in the College's Memorial Wing which was opened in 1951.
