The Highgate Hall of Honour recognises the service and civilian histories of current and past members of the RSL Highgate Sub-Branch.  Participation in the Hall is voluntary and not all past or current Highgate members are listed.  The Hall was the initiative of the late Phil Loffman, a former President and long-serving Committee Member of the Sub-Branch in addition to long-serving as a Deputy Warden of the State War Memorial.  The Hall includes the names of those who were members of the West Perth, Public Service or Press Sub-Branches which were amalgamated with the Highgate Sub-Branch in 1976.

The initial version of the Hall was published in the 50th Anniversary History of the Sub-Branch in 1997 and contains 492 entries.  It has been progressively updated since being added to the Highgate Website in the mid-2000s.  Today there are more than 900 past and current members recorded.  Details can be amended or new entries added at any time by contacting Highgate’s Secretary or Membership Officer with contact details shown on the Committee Page or by completing the Application Form on line.

The Hall also shows the names of those who attended the Inaugural Meeting on 14 May 1947, who were Foundation Members when the Highgate Sub-Branch was chartered on 2 August 1947, and who attended the 25th Anniversary Dinner on 27 September 1972.  In addition, the Hall shows Highgate Members who have additionally volunteered for two small but important tasks that honour the fallen and assist the community community to remember them – State War Memorial Deputy Wardens and Sub-Wardens and Honour Avenues Kings Park maintenance.  Both these tasks have been long associated with Highgate and its antecedent Sub-Branches – Honour Avenues from 1921 and the State War Memorial from 1952.  The names of those who participated in the Dedication of the Flame of Remembrance at Kings Park on 1 April 2000 are also shown.

The Hall can be searched either by entering the first letter of the Family or Surname in the Filter Box shown below or, by entering name, service number or any other possible identifying words in the Search Box shown at the top or top right of this page.  This latter method searches the entire Website and may return multiple results.
