Gilgai Honor Roll

15th July 2019

This polished oak honor roll, with the names of local soldiers and two nurses, was unveiled on Friday 8 June 1917. It was made at Mr. B M Wade’s works in Inverell and paid for by Gilgai residents.

Mrs. Woodford and Mrs Kramer unveiled the Roll – both Mothers had three sons enlist for War service. The Roll was located at the Gilgai Public School and, at the time, it was expected that further names would be added at the end of the War.
