Tauhoa-Mangakura Roll of Honour

Roll of Honour

The Victoria Hall at Tauhoa was built in 1903. It burnt down in 1951 but was replaced and reopened in 1955. It is not known whether the hall had housed a district roll of honour; if so, it disappeared in the fire. However, in 1982 the Tauhoa Centennial Committee resolved to compile a roll of all former pupils of the Tauhoa and Mangakura schools who had served in the armed forces during the two world wars or later conflicts, or in the Home Guard.

The Tauhoa-Mangakura Roll of Honour which was unveiled some years later lists 19 former pupils of Tauhoa School and 17 former pupils of Mangakura School who served during the First World War, including one nurse (Charlotte 'Lottie' Le Gallais); 23 men from Tauhoa or Mangakura who served during the Second World War; two men who served during the Korean War; and the names of four former teachers.
