Description

The honour roll was made by Mrs. Payne, widow of the late Dr. Payne of Hobart, and comprises pieces of beautifully carved blackwood. On it are engraved the names of the 500 old boys who answered the call and in the centre the names of those who made the supreme sacrifice. The engraving in big letters, “1914-Honour Roll-The Great War-1918,” runs across the board above the names, and the Grammar School coat of arms stands out in the centre of the large engraving. The board is a very fine memorial, and one of which the school will ever be proud.
