Laceys Creek World War Two Honour Board in Dayboro Community Hall

Laceys Creek World War Two Honour Board

The Courier Mail of 4th September 1949 reported “…The Senate Opposition Leader (Senator Cooper) will unveil a Service Honour Board at Lacey’s Creek, near Dayboro, tomorrow…” 

Ted Costelloe made the solid silky oak Honour Board which proudly hung in the Laceys Creek Hall.  The expensive lettering was constructed with real gold leaf which was a very good investment.  More than seventy years later it has weathered well, the characters still easily readable.  When the Laceys Creek Hall closed in the early 1970s, special permission was obtained to transfer the Honour Board to the Dayboro Community Hall which is now maintained by Moreton Bay Regional Council.
