Description

The brass Honour Roll in the shape of an open book is mounted on a plinth with two crossed flags and two military metal figures. It commemorates the members of the Lismore Water Brigade and Rowing Club who died in service or were killed in action during World War 2. The Northern Star reported on 27 September 1941 that fourteen members of the club had enlisted.

The Lismore Rowing Club was established by July 1896. A sub-committee was formed in 1945 to investigate the question of boats and training of crews for the proposed Lismore Water Brigade. In August it reported that it was to recommend the formation of a new organization to be called the Lismore Rowing Club and Water Brigade at a meeting to be held at the Council Chambers on 22 August. The Northern Star, 4 December 1945 reported that a public meeting was to be held that night and the council was to hand over the assets held in trust for the Lismore Rowing Club. At a meeting held on the previous day, the club's name was changed to the Lismore Water Brigade and Rowing Club and it was reported that ninety young men had signified their intention to join.
