Nerrigundah Second World War 1939 Roll of Honor


This roll of honor is from the town of Nerrigundah, although not marked as such. It is a framed stainless steel plate with engraved black lettering. It is situated on the kitchen wall of the Bodalla Memorial Hall. As Nerrigundah became a ghost town due to the dwindling of gold and the removal of its hall, the roll was moved to Bodalla for safe keeping.

Note on veterans' names: the name 'Patten' could be incorrectly spelt as both Laurie and William are listed as 'Patton' on the Australian War Memorial Second World War Roll.
