Wisemans Ferry & Districts War Memorial Print Page
A monument commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial contains a sculpture of an ANZAC Soldier surmounted by an obelisk which was installed in 2014. The memorial also commemorates the centenary of ANZAC.
On the 5th. November 2010 at Wisemans’ Ferry, a committee was appointed for the raising of a suitable Memorial in memory of those men and women who departed the district to serve in all conflicts since Federation. It was decided to have a public launch of the project inviting supportive residents of the district including: Mr. Philip Ruddock, M.P. Federal Member for Berowra. Ms. Louise Markus, M.P. Federal Member for Macquarie. Mr. Ray Williams, State Member for Hawkesbury.
The committee, spearheaded by Wisemans’ Ferry resident and Vietnam Veteran Wayne Moore was comprised of residents of various backgrounds from the Wisemans’ Ferry District with one thing in common, they have shown to be ANZAC supporters with an understanding of the need to publicly record the names of those who served their country during a time of war.
The aim was to have the Memorial in place to mark the Centenary of the Gallipoli landing and to record the names of the district servicemen and women who left their family life and farms to protect their way of life and freedom that we now enjoy.
