Description

The First World War Roll of Honor board is mounted high on the wall inside the front entrance of Parramatta Mental Hospital’s old administration office building. The building is now a historical site and is occupied by Sydney University.

The board is made of polished solid marble in three different colours with inlaid, engraved gold lettering on white marble. It measures 1.2m wide by 1.75m tall. Fifteen of forty-eight veterans listed on the board paid the supreme sacrifice and did not return home from the First World War. Six of forty-eight names listed can not be positively identified with a connection to the Mental Hospital on the National Archives Australia website, the A.I.F. project database of UNSW Canberra or on the Australian War Memorial database.

On each side of the board is a print from a painting by Will Longstaff. Both prints are 83cm wide and 61cm tall. On the left-hand side is 'The Immortal Shrine' and on the right-hand side, 'Menin Gate at Midnight'.
