Following several patriotic speeches at a special function at Gum Flat, this Honor Roll was unveiled on Wednesday 3 October 1917 by Mrs. S L Cohen. It had been covered by a large Union Jack flag and red, white and blue ribbons.
Similar to the Delungra Honor Roll, it was designed and crafted by the Sydney company Wunderlich Ltd. It is made of bronze and mounted on oak with names inscribed on brass plates.
During the ceremony school children participated by singing patriotic songs. Afterwards the Gum Flat ladies provided afternoon tea.
