Description

The memorial is a simply designed timber roll of honor. At the top of the board is a curved section featuring a small timber carving resembling a wreath with ribbons. The main section of the board is decorated with a painting of the Australian and British flags, flanking the first Commonwealth Coat of Arms. The list of names appears below, painted in gold across two columns.

On 6 January 1916, the Northern Star reported the roll was unveiled at Dunoon Methodist Church on Sunday 2 January. At the time, it had 16 names. A further 17 names were added following the unveiling.

The roll was moved to St Matthews's Anglican Church in Dunoon for safekeeping, following the closure of the Methodist Church. Access to the memorial is restricted by the opening hours of the church. 

Information on the transfer of the roll to St Matthew's has been provided courtesy of the Anglican Parish of Lismore.
