QUEENSLAND DISTRICT ROLL OF HONOUR
Last night I was trying to read the names on a photo of the Shire of Nunawading Roll of Honour and it was a hopeless task. I had the same trouble last year trying to transcribe the names on the photo of the W.W.1 memorial seat at Flinders, Victoria so I decided to publish them in a journal, involving only a very pleasant drive from Rosebud. I'm sure that somebody is looking for these lists.
Unfortunately, I can't copy and paste the digitisation which just reads across columns, mixing up names from the various areas, so perhaps somebody is clever enough to take a screen shot of the actual page and attach it to a journal. There are too many names to fit into a surnames list.
I think Ocean Grove would have been struggling to field a footy team in those days!
If you google Marcus, Victoria, you'll get a map showing the locations of Marcus Hill and Wallington. The name Moolap comes from the aboriginal description of Point Henry. The area includes Point Henry and, extending south, straddles the Bellarine Highway. MAP OF MOOLAP
Leopold is east of Moolap and was originally known as Kensington before it was royally renamed.
