Wilson's Creek–Huonbrook World War II Honour Roll

Wilson's Creek–Huonbrook World War II Honour Roll
Description

On Monday 20 October 1947 a meeting of the Wilson's–Huonbrook Welcome Home Committee was held in the Wilson's Creek Hall to wind up the affairs of the committee. The Tweed Daily's issue on 31 October 1947 reported that the committee had welcomed thirty-five returned men. Following the winding up of the committee, it was planned to use the money at hand to donate it to an honour roll to be placed in the Wilson's Creek Hall. The Tweed Daily on 27 April 1948 reported that the Wilson's Creek honour roll was to be unveiled on the following day at a social to be held in the hall.

The Northern Star and Tweed Daily on 3 May 1948 described the unveiling of the honour roll containing the names of thirty-six men who had served. Mullumbimby Mayor Ald. E G Davies unveiled the Honour Roll. The newspaper accounts published the names of the mem listed on the roll.

The simply designed timber honour roll featuring art deco features is now located in the Mullimbimby Ex-Services Club.
