Description

Excerpt from the Cowra Free Press (1 Feb 1919):

the residents of the town and district rolled up in hundreds to witness the ceremony of unveiling the Honor Roll, on which are inscribed the names of 66 men from the town and district who volunteered for service with the A.I.F. The roll is of silky oak, and the lettering inscribed in gold. Mr. D. Evans prepared the roll, and the lettering was the work of Mr. T. Foley. All the material was supplied by Messrs Mannell and Healey.

The Second World War honour roll was made by Herbert Fisher in the late 1940s to match the original for the First World War.

The honour rolls are in fair condition and are currently being assessed by a conservator. They are housed in the front alcove of the Regional Rooms.
