This honour board commemorates the men from Walkerston and the Palms district who served in the Great War. The Palms was the location of a large sugar mill and estate a couple of miles north-east of Walkerston. The mill was badly damaged in the 1918 Cyclone and later amalgamated with the Pleystowe Sugar Mill.
The Honour Board was originally located in the Walkerston Railway Station that was located in McColl Street. The Railway station was removed to Greenmount Homestead in 1985 and the Honour Board was restored by the local RSL sub-branch and relocated to its current locality.
