2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. To commemorate this important year, the NSW Government is interviewing WWII veterans about their experiences. Read our 75th Anniversary Stories.
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.
