Summary: By late 1924 the Hamilton Hill Memorial Hall committee was nearing its fundraising goal. It needed a final big event to round up enough funds to begin building the hall that would commemorate the district's soldiers. Near Christmas the committee held a popular 'Black and White Carnival' with the stalls laid out in the shape of an enormous battleship on the ground where the hall would be built. They raised an extra £250 and construction on the hall began early in 1925.
