Description / Background

This beautifully illustrated document is an honour roll for the First World War. It lists the names of 12 members of the Manchester Unity Independent Order of Oddfellows (M.U.I.O.O.F.) who served in the war. The men were all from the number 203 Loyal Prince of Wales Lodge, which was active in the Tamworth district, including the town of Barraba. 

The main decorative element on the page is an image of a charging soldier, holding his bayonet. He is flanked by six flagpoles and two cannons. The two flags that are visible are for Australia and Britain. The supporting illustrations are of flowers, scrolls, and a ribbon banner that highlights the name of the lodge. 

The lodge was well-established in Barraba by the time of the war, being open from at least June 1903. Therefore, while the origins of the roll are unknown, it is likely it was unveiled or displayed wherever the brothers held their meetings in town.

The roll is now located in the Barraba Historical Museum, also known as the Nandewar Historical Society Museum. Also on site is the M.U.I.O.O.F. Loyal Prince of Wales Lodge No. 203 Tamworth District Second World War Roll of Honour
