Audit Department roll of honour board

On 22 December 1916 the Audit Office unveiled a roll of honour board in its head office in Wellington. The ‘handsome polished cedar-wood’ board contained the names of 22 men from the office who had gone to the front or were in training. [1] The names of Private Clarence Thompson and Sergeant John Saxon were marked with asterisks indicating that they had died on active service.

Space was left on the board for names to be added. Eventually there were 32, five of them marked with asterisks.

The board remains on display in the head office of the Office of the Auditor-General.
