Wingham and the Upper Manning Honour Roll Project
Wingham RSL sub-Branch commenced a project to update the Honour Roll at the Wingham Memorial Town Hall. They aim to create, document and carry out a process to identify every person in the Wingham and Upper Manning locality who has completed military service in the Australian Defence Force and to recognise their service by placing their details on a military honour board at the Wingham Town Hall

The project committee has made determinations to include twenty-eight new names to the honour roll.
