A monument commemorates those from the district who served in both World Wars. 

The Governor of N.S.W. (Lieut.-General Sir John Northcott) will visit Batlow tomorrow to unveil a war memorial. A guard of honor of approximately 100 officers and other ranks will be in attendance from the R.A.A.F. School of Technical Training, Forest Hill, and will be accompanied by the unit band. The commemorative religious service will be conducted by Chaplain T. J. O'Brien, of Forest Hill, and will start at 2.30 p.m.

After the Governor unveils the memorial, it will be dedicated by the Rev. Colin Dane. Then will follow "The Last Post,"  two minutes silence, "Reveille" and the laying of wreaths. The ceremony will conclude with the hymn "Abide With Me" and the Blessing.
