Modella Honour Roll

On Saturday, December 15 2018 a new honour board was unveiled at the Modella public hall, by Mr Colin Teese, the President of the Bunyip R.S.L. The wreath was laid by Mrs Dorothy Goodman, the niece of  John Archibald (Archie)  Lugton and  Mr Wayne  Rogers - the grandson of  William Corbin. The original board had been destroyed when the hall burnt down in the late 1970s. The community, led by Mrs Mavis Martin, should be commended for their work in replacing the board and giving 'their boys', their place in the history of the town. Mavis also generously donated the Honour board. The event was attended by over 50 locals of all ages, a great turn out.

If you want to know who all the soldiers are, then the names are on my Modella soldiers post, read it here.
