Remembering our People

The University has always stood as a beacon of truth, integrity, excellence, and respect, principles evident in our motto, "The Way, The Truth, The Life." Here we provide access to the names of those who were enshrined in the University Role of Honour for their wartime service.

This online space not only showcases their contributions but also extends an invitation to descendants to enrich our records, ensuring that the essence of every individual endures.
