Former Commercial Banking Company of Sydney Head Office Honour Rolls

Description

 

In what was the main banking chamber there are two Honour Rolls:

the first to Bank staff who served in World War 1 and the second to staff who lost their lives in World War 2.

 

Both plaques are made of bronze with names embossed.

The memorial states that of the 70 staff who died in the War, 52 were Killed in Action (KIA) and 18 Died on Service (DOS). It does not indicate, however, who the people were in those two different categories.

The following information on the Veterans status was gathered from the Australian War Memorial website:
