TitleStrathpine District Roll of HonourDescription"The Honour Board was designed by a leading Brisbane metal worker, Ernest Gunderson, in 1921. It was commissioned by the Strathpine Patriotic League and hung in the Pine Rivers Shire Hall (Old Shire Hall) until 1980 when it was moved to the local RSL Club. The board lists in alphabetical order the 76 names of local men who served in World War one. Some of the letters are missing and others were replaced in 1984 when a local, Fred Williams, refurbished the board.The Strathpine Honour Board is significant for its aesthetic quality and craftsmanship; as a rare example of the work of Brisbane craftsman Ernest Gunderson; as a member of a class of commemorative structures erected as a record of the local impact of a major historical event and intended to endure; and as evidence of a widespread social movement expressing the imperial loyalties of the period. Gunderson's honour boards are unique to Queensland and few remain as intact as this example."
