img-00010This Honour Roll can be found outside the Gerringong Soldier's Hall on the corner of Fern and Belinda Streets, Gerringong. The Gerringong Soldiers Hall has two honour rolls. The Honour Roll displayed here is on the outside of the building, while the other is inside the hall.

You may also enjoy images of memorabilia found inside the hall.

Please click on any soldier's name to find out more about them.

As the history of WW1 is incomplete, the information on this Honour Roll reflects this. Other Honour Rolls display names and initials differently from one Honour Roll to another for a variety of reasons. The information available is similarly incomplete and awaiting further detail.

It should also be noted that many enlistees gave false names, addresses and ages so they could be involved.

All information is from websites offering free information. Research available on fee paying subscrption websites is not published here.

We welcome any information so please contact us regarding any contributions you may have.

The following Honour Rolls are displayed on the outside of the Gerringong Soldier's Hall. There are similarities between the inside and outside rolls, but there are anomolies as well.

The first outside Honour Roll lists those who answered the call, the last Honour Roll lists those who made the ultimate sacrifice.

As an accompaniment, we have published the list of those mentioned on the Gerringong Honour Rolls for your perusal.

bugler6honour-rollsHonour Rolls are used to list those that answered the call to War.

They list the volunteers who enlisted at that particular enlistment centre. These lists cannot be considered to be comprehensive as anomolies exist.

The lest-we-forgetliGerringong Soldiers’ Hall displays its WW1 Honour Roll inside the building.

The lest-we-forgetliGerringong Soldiers’ Hall displays its WW1 Honour Roll outside the building.

The lest-we-forgetliJamberoo WW1 Honour Roll is displayed outside the Jamberoo School of Arts.

The lest-we-forgetliKiama Memorial Arch is located on the intersection of Terralong and Collins Street.

A feature of the Honour Roll images is that a name can be selected from the Honour Roll and the details of the particular service person is displayed. Try it out!

We are always looking for further information, so please contact us with any you may have about those who answered the call.

An ongoing discussion will be which soldier came from which town and whether a soldier came from this district at all.

Another interesting aspect of the army is the numbering system for the enlisted soldiers.

We are compiling lists of soldiers who were born in Jamberoo, Gerringong and Kiama. Some of the soldiers are on our Honour Rolls found in the district, others had moved to other places to live. It reflects the confusion of record keeping at that time.
