QRA ROLL OF HONOUR

CLUB MEMBERS WHO MADE THE SUPREME SACRIFICE

A primary purpose of the Armistice Memorial Centenary War Memorial (ACWM) is to commemorate the more than 500 Queensland riflemen who made the supreme sacrifice during WW1. The QRA Museum’s WW1 Honour Board records the names of many of these fallen soldiers.

Records show that some 568 Rifle Club members from the 1st Military District gave their lives during WW1, fighting for freedom.

To date, 146 of these men are listed on the Honour Board, with more to be added because of ongoing research. These were ordinary young Australians who did something extraordinary for King and country. Their efforts need to be remembered.

It is also important to recognise, not only the Queensland WWI riflemen who were lost in the conflict, but also those from other conflicts and peace time contributions in which Queensland riflemen have played a part. This inclusive commemoration is reflected on the walls that flank the central circle of the ACWM, where all major campaigns and peace time efforts are represented through the addition of 12 plaques.

It is important for us to hear the stories behind these names on the Honour Board for WWI and other conflicts and peacetime operations. ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day Commemoration Services we will continue to pay tribute to more of these riflemen through the Roll of Honour Tribute, as well as being included on the Wall of Honour now featured on the QRA website.
