Photographs supplied by Diane Watson / Russell Byers

The Toogoolawah War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. The memorial is a very early Queensland war memorial, and lists many names of ex-service personnel from World War One to Vietnam.

A metal plate, honouring 15 local citizens who gave their lives in the Second World War, was attached to the memorial in 1955. In 1988 two additional plaques were attached commemorating those who had served in post-1945 conflicts.
