Bowling Alley Point World War I Roll of Honour

Bowling Alley Point World War I Roll of Honour
Description

Bowling Alley Point was a small settlement based on gold mining found in the Nundle District in the 1800s. It once had hotels, a post office, a school, as well as Methodist and Presbyterian Churches.

By May 1917, there was a Union Church; the Roll of Honour was unveiled in one on the night of Monday, 7 May 1917. Reverend Mills-Robson presided at the ceremony and Miss Lily Brann, daughter of the late Sergeant G A Brann, unveiled the memorial.  The Daily Observer on 11 May 1917 described the ceremony and listed the names on the honour roll. Since that date, two wooden sleeves were added to the original board with additional names added.

At a later date, the Roll of Honour was moved from the Bowling Alley Point Church to the Nundle Memorial Hall.
