Melbourne High School Roll of Honour

The Melbourne High Rifle Team in 1910.  Many of these boys would have joined up a few years later.
Many of the local volunteers didn't appear on any of the local school Honour Boards.  About 30 of them had attended Melbourne High School, a selective government school in South Yarra. 

The Roll of Honour for this school appears in The Story of Melbourne High School, 1905-1921:  Jubilee Year of State Education in Victoria.  J Hocking, B.A, Principal.   Specialty Press: Melbourne, 1922. 

The Book has been digitised and can be found on the State Library of Victoria website at this URL:

 The school magazine, called "Ours", throughout the war carried news and letters as well as photos of the ex-students and teachers.  Copies of the magazine are available at the State Library of Victoria, either in hard copy or inicroform.  The school has also loaded up three 1915 issues onto their school library website.
