The Roll of Honour lists members of ATC who fought during World War 2.

It was hung in Memorial Hut until the transfer of ownership to the Central Plateau Schools.

The original of the Roll is a significant art work requiring long term preservation so has now been gifted to the Auckland Museum. As part of the gifting process, Auckland Museum provided us with a high quality slightly amended replica and electronic files which are now held in the ATC Committee electronic archives.

This replica has now been installed in Ngaro Te Kotare.

The visual difference between the original roll and the replica is the number of red stars. The original has a star alongside the names of three of the men killed, the replica has the names of all five marked with a star. The original stars were painted, not self adhesive "add ons", and no reason has been found as to why only three stars featured on the original.
