The Manly Surf Club - World War 2 Honour Board

Description

Wooden honour board with mounted silver plated name plaques to commemorate those who served. Also included are service emblems, and decorative scrolls. The header "Manly Surf Club" is carved from wood, as is the border of the board.

 

Many young members of the MSC answered the call in both wars.

It is unknown when, but apparently contemporary to the end of each war, both the WW1 and WW2 Honour Boards were established by the MSC.

 

The MSC plans to restore the two Honour Boards, identify as many persons as possible named thereon and appropriately cause their sacrifices and efforts to be acknowledged not only at the MSC, but throughout the Northern Beaches and elsewhere by Anzac Day 2015.

Please note, the MSC should not be confused with the nearby Manly Life Saving Club (MLSC). The latter formed some years afterwards and is that which now voluntarily patrols the beach, competes in surf carnivals and the like; whereas MSC was founded in 1907 as a club for surfers, although many members also joined MLSC. This is the current status with both clubs functioning separately, but amicably, since their respective times of inception.
