Inverell Memorial Olympic Pool World War I Honour Roll

Inverell Memorial Olympic Pool World War I Honour Roll
Description

The timber and brass World War I honour roll is located in the centre of the memorial wall, at the front of the Inverell and District Memorial Olympic Pool. At the base of the honour roll is a plaque dedicated to the award of Australia's highest military honour, the
Victoria Cross, to Pte George Cartwright on 31 August 1918. A new metal plaque is also attached at the base with further names of those who served in World War I.

The honour roll was unveiled when the Memorial Olympic Pool was officially opened by Lieutenant General Gordon Bennett on 1 November 1958. Other honour rolls on the memorial wall commemorate World War II and a number of post–World War II conflicts in which Australians served.
