Sinclair Public School and Long Plain First World War Roll of Honour

Sinclair Public School and Long Plain First World War Roll of Honour
Description

The memorial is a paper roll of honour, displayed behind glass in an oak timber frame. It was presented to the Sinclair Public School by Mr T.G. Mitchell of Long Plain and was unveiled at the school on Saturday, 6 October 1917. A detailed report of the unveiling was described in the Inverell Times shortly after on 9 October. The gathering was so large the school's verandah was used for the event. Mrs Bell, mother of the two soldiers who served, unveiled the roll.

By the opening of the Long Plain Soldier's Memorial Hall in 1922, the roll was located in the hall. In time, it was moved to the RSL Museum in the Inverell Pioneer Village. In 1942, the original roll was repaired and restored.

Access to the memorial is restricted by the opening hours of the museum and village.
