Description

Wooden Honour board with winged WW2 additional sides added in 1995

"The unveiling of the Samson Vale honour board took place recently in the new Samson Vale Hall, there being a very large attendance of residents. The board, which is a beautiful one of polished cedar, has been erected by the Samson Vale branch of the Farmers' Union, and was made free of cost by Mr. W. Owens, the workmanship and design reflecting great credit on the maker. The board contains the names of 29 residents of the Samson Vale district, of whom Messrs. E. Joyner, G. Fogg, and T. Graham have paid the supreme sacrifice for King and Empire. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Thos. Layden." In 1995 the old Samson Vale Hall was renovated and a new honour board was commissioned to include those who had served in WWII.
