City of Hawthorn Honour Roll 52/7/1

The City of Hawthorn Roll of Honour records all the citizens of Hawthorn who enlisted in the First World War. There is also a separate section which lists those who fell in the war. The Honour roll has lived in the foyer of Hawthorn Town Hall for decades but due to the imminent renovation of the building it is now proudly on display at Hawthorn Library.

Next time you are at the library, come and have a read of it. You'll only be able to see one page but it is interesting to see what residents pop up so you might have to keep coming back! And if you want to see the whole list of people without coming back, there is a complete transcript available for viewing in the Hawthorn Library local history section.
