Roll of Honour, Auckland Province (digital copy)

documentary heritage
  • Description

    An electronic version of the World War I Roll of Honour for the Auckland province, the original of which is on display in the World War One Sanctuary. The Roll contains an alphabetical list of servicemen, including regimental number, rank, honours, unit and next-of-kin.

    The original Roll of Honour was handwritten on parchment by 2/832 Major Percival Beaumont Greenhough and then bound into two volumes. The illuminated frontispieces were created using gold leaf by Louise Tilsley, and the bronze caskets the volumes are currently displayed in were created by English-born sculptor, Richard Oliver Gross.

    The Roll was purchased in 1934 by the Auckland Institute and Museum from the Auckland Provincial Roll of Honour Committee.
