Honour 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 Jamberoo WW1 Honour Roll is displayed outside the Jamberoo School of Arts.
The Kiama 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.
