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.
The original Roll of Honour (pictured) was built in 1917 by a woodwork teacher called Humphreys, to remember the service of Sydney Technical High School (STHS) students and teachers. As seen in the photograph, two magnificent carved columns frame the board and at the bottom of the columns are two discs showing theatres of service. 152 names were on the original board. The then Minister of Education, Mr James attended the unveiling of the memorial in 1917 when the school was located at Ultimo in the grounds of Sydney Technical College. Some time later a second board was added with 128 names and the wooden carved columns disappeared (pictured).
The Roll of Honour is made out of oak timber. It is in the main entrance building of the school, close to the auditorium.
