Centenary of ANZACPrint Page
A wall commemorates those from the district who served in World War One, and also those who have given their lives in wars and conflicts. Funding was received through the Anzac centenary Grants Program.
Mrs Sudmalis said the sea-side structure is a permanent reminder to the community of the sacrifice local servicemen made; this grant was used for the section for the First World War
“The Anzac Centenary Local Grant Program enables communities to support commemorations at the local level by giving them the opportunity to secure funding to keep the stories of local men and women alive for future generations to come,” Mrs Sudmalis said.
“The Huskisson RSL Sub-Branch has built a commemorative wall with the names of local servicemen who left the south coast to serve their country.
“Five men included in the memorial were also members of the Waratah March that departed Nowra."

IN HONOUR OF ALL THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN IN WARS AND CONFLICTS
REMEMBERING THE GREAT WAR
4 AUGUST 1914 TO 11 NOVEMBER 1918
THEY WENT WITH SONGS TO THE BATTLE, THEY WERE YOUNG,
STRAIGHT OF LIMB, TRUE OF EYE, STEADY AND AGLOW,
THEY WERE STAUNCH TO THE END AGAINST ODDS UNCOUNTED
THEY FELL WITH THEIR FACES TO THE FOE.
THEY SHALL GROW NOT OLD AS WE THAT ARE LEFT GROW OLD;
AGE SHALL NOT WEAR THEM NOR THE YEARS CONDEMN
AT THE GOING DOWN OF THE SUN AND IN THE MORNING
WE WILL REMEMBER THEM.
LEST WE FORGET
