The Wall of Honour commemorates the servicemen and women of the district who had served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved.  The memorial contains rolls of honour for those who served in both World Wars. More than 300 men and women from the Bushy Park district and surrounds had enlisted in World War One and a similar number in World War Two.

The official opening was performed by the Federal Member for Lyons, Dick Adams MHR, on behalf of the Minister for Veterans Affairs on the 6th April 2013.  Mr Adams said the new monument would become a focal point for the community and would enhance the significance of Anzac Day services at the pool. This was followed by a service of dedication conducted by Lieutenant Jacky Laing of the New Norfolk Salvation Army.

Wall of Honour 

Honouring our servicemen and women in all fields of conflict and peacekeeping operations

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old,
age shall not weary then, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
we will remember them.
