St Thomas' Church Soldiers' Memorial Hall

The congregation of StThomas;s Church of England in Moonee Ponds determined to establish a memorial to the men of the parish who lost their lives in the Great War.  The Soldiers' Memorial Hall was opened in October 1920 and was intended to provide for billiard facilities for young men, and a kindergarten space on Sundays.  The young men are long gone, but the hall forms part of a kindergarten.

The hall also housed an honour board naming each of the men who had died.  This can now be seen in St Thomas's Anglican Church, Mt Alexander Rd, Moonee Ponds.  Further information about the hall can be found here
