Honour Rolls

Getting to know about our fallen heroes.

The honour roll is a long-standing series of bronze panels with about one hundred thousand people as its members who happen to have died during or after service under the armed forces. It is the standard way of commemorating or celebrating fallen heroes who died while defending the country and her people.

The role of honour which is at the centre of the building takes into account and celebrates members of the Australian armed forces who lost their lives while fighting for the nation or during the times after the war.

The role of honour is in the form of the panel made out of bronze and a database which has the list of all persons who are being celebrated. The database also contains vital information such as their names, their date of birth, date of death, location of death and other details. The database records also contain images of the individuals.

To be on the roll of honour, there are certain questions of eligibility which are taken into consideration by the council of memorials. Before a fallen armed force member join the roll of honour, some of the criteria include;

Such individual must;

  • Have died during the time period for which he or she is to be specifically honoured. For first and second world wars, such person must have died during the war period.
  • Must have died as a result of service.
  • Must have been a member of the unit of armed forces in Australia.

The honour rolls is a long-standing series of bronze.

The Memorial council takes the honour rolls and all its incidental responsibilities with all seriousness. They make sure to record the Australian sacrifices made during the war and subsidiary war operations to ensure the records are accurate, valid and reliable.

Commemorative Roll

The commemorative roll celebrates members of the Australian armed forces that lost their lives during and after the war to either the war itself or other military operations.

To be a member of the commemorative roll, such person must have been a member of either the armed forces or Navy. He or she could also be a staff of military operations such as historian, photographer, artist, medical personnel etc.

The eligibility is quite similar to that of the honour roll. One key difference between honour roll and commemorative roll is that the commemorative roll was brought up via pleadings to members of the public for nominations.

Roll Of Honour Name Projections

There is a particular time between when the sun rises and sets that names on the honour roll are displayed into the dome. This display serves as a form of tribute or homage to those who sacrificed their lives for the country.

The role of honour now has names of both men and women who serve in the Australian armed forces and died for the nation. Their names are displayed once in three months and are always in batches of their operation from which spectators will be able to view from the dome.
