Attached to the wall adjacent to the church entrance you find the honour roll hanging between the Australian and the British flags. The stained wooden honour board lists 15 veterans from the local area who attended the church. The memorial board with its gold lettering and wooden scrolls on either side of the veterans' names is 600mm wide and 900mm high.
The foundation stone for the Presbyterian Church in Castle Hill was unveiled on 2 September 1939 by Reverend G M Scott Home Missions Superintendent, 1936-1939. The new modern St Columba’s Presbyterian Church Castle Hill was opened on 6 March 1976 and the memorial boards were transferred from the old Presbyterian Church.
No record of L Attwater can be found with connections to the Castle Hill / Hills Shire area on the National Archives Australia data base, WW1 AIF database or on the WW2 Nominal Rolls. L Attwater is listed in Hills Hero’s with no information. Miss L Attwater is listed as an officer for The new Presbyterian Church to be erected at Castle Hill in the Hills District.
