Description / Background

The Sydney Harbour Trust operated from 1901 to 1 February 1936, when it was replaced by the Maritime Service Board of NSW. There were 323 Sydney Harbour Trust employees who joined the 1st Australian Imperial Force (A.I.F.) and served in the First World War. Of these 323, 44 died while on active service with the A.I.F. during the war.

This photographic honour roll has 41 photographs of the veterans who died while on active service, and three photographs are missing. One died at Fromelles, seven at Gallipoli, 22 in France, 11 in Belgium, two in England and one in Australia.
