Uralla Public School Honour Roll WW1
Description

Under the auspices of the local branch of the RS and S Imperial League, Anzac Day 1921 was observed by the unveiling of a honour roll at the public school. The Armidale Chronicle, 30 April 1921 described the occasion. The school headmaster Mr J H McAlpine addressed the audience as well as the Mayor Ald W M Elliott, Mr A McClelland MLA and church representatives.

The headmaster Mr McAlpine asked for any omitted names to be fowarded to him. In reporting the unveiling, the Uralla Times 30 April 1921 published all names on the roll.
