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. 

April 17, 2015
Federal Member for Gilmore Ann Sudmalis has officially acknowledged the Huskisson RSL Sub-Branch with their $25,000 grant for the construction of a commemorative wall in Voyager Park, Huskisson as part of the Anzac Centenary Local Grant 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."

Front Inscription

IN HONOUR OF ALL THOSE WHO HAVE FALLEN IN WARS AND CONFLICTS 

REMEMBERING THE GREAT WAR
4 AUGUST 1914 TO 11 NOVEMBER 1918 
(NAMES)

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.
