Narrabri District School Roll of Honour 1914 - 1919

Description

 

Marble mosaic honour roll by M. W. Hardy of Narrabri. Patent No 12679 Mr John Brooks of the Narrabri Historical Society has supplied the following information about the history of this memorial: This memorial was originally comprised of two Honour Rolls and was created in 1919 by Mr M. W. Hardy. The rolls were unveiled in April 1919 by the Premier of NSW, along with two Memorial Drinking Fountains which are now located in the foyer of the main building at Narrabri Public School. The rolls were erected by the school's Parents and Citizens Association to record those ex-pupils and teachers of the school who had enlisted for service in World War 1. Twenty-one of those named paid the supreme sacrifice. In 1932 one of the rolls fell and was damaged beyond repair.

The drinking fountains are cast Iron, bright blue, donated by the members of the John Vinal Whiteman Family.  Foyer of the main building of the Narrabri Public School.
