Who was Nellie Payne?

Glamorgan Municipality, Tasmania. Honour roll unveiled 1954.

Glamorgan WW2 honour roll.


This World War 2 honour roll looks like it was carved by the same person as the WW1 honour roll, it is therefore assumed that Nellie has carved it, as it is recorded that she carved the WW1 roll. The other possibility is that someone else has carved the WW2 honour roll to match Nellie’s carved WW1 honour roll.
