Tributes of Honour

The baseline data for most of the memorials on this site was soured from the original Tributes of Honour site between 2002 and 2005 by Will and Jacqui Clough and a small army of volunteer contributors across SA and the NT.  They have left a wonderful legacy - 1,700 memorial records and 48,000 discrete names, many of which appear on multiple memorials.

Australian War Memorial

Pre WW1 Nominal Rolls, WW1 Embarkation Roll - currently loaded as the "Source of Truth" base record against which a surname and initials can be matched.

AWM Roll of Honour provides added detail for all individuals who were Killed in Action or died as a result of war related wounds, illness or disease.

State Library of South Australia & State Records

Images and biographies for WW1 servicemen and women from both Library and State archives.

 

Department of Veterans Affairs (Canberra)

DVA have provided Nominal Roll data for SA, NT and Broken Hill for WW2, Korea and Vietnam. It is anticipated that other states data will be incorporated during 2016.

 

RSL SA Branch

RSL Card Records from WW1.  When the survivors returned home after the war, most joined the RSL.  RSL-SA has digitised nearly 30,000 membership records the content of which will be uploaded in due course, providing an insight into the lives of the survivors post war.  Often contains death and interment detail.

Queensland WW2 Army Nominal Roll - Bill Park CBE AM

The result of 12 years of research undertaken by WW2 veteran, Bill Park.  A file of 167 000 individual records was gifted to the RSL Virtual War Memorial by Bill in February 2015. These records form part of the WW2 data collection and are available 

 

We are grateful to all the individuals and organisations for the enormously valuable contributions made so far.
