Description

The board is of light Tasmanian blackwood, and measures 4ft. 6in. by 3ft. It was carved by Mrs. Payne, of Hobart. It is unique in design and magnificent in execution. On the top is carved the British lion, while on the left is Britannia calling for help from her sons across the sea. On the other side is an Australian soldier responding to the appeal, and standing out splendidly in the rays of the rising sun . Above the two is the inscription, “Kimberley Honour Roll of the Great War.” Underneath is beautifully carved “The bugles of the Motherland rang ceaselessly across the sea to call him and his lean, brown band, to shape Imperial destiny.” No distinguishing marks as to rank, etc., are shown on the board. The names are in alphabetical order, numbering 54, and the asterisk indicates those who made the supreme sacrifice.
