Berrima War Memorial commemorates those who served in both World Wars . The memorial also contains a plaque in memory of the fallen and the unknown Australian soldier.

At Berrima the service followed the unveiling of the War Memorial by Mr Blake Pelly, M.L.A., and its dedication by Rev. Mitchell of Moss Vale. The memorial, almost wholly constructed by members of the  sub-branch, is of simple but impressive design and is set in a park on which the members have done an amazing amount of work over the past few months. Mr. Pelly quoted the well known poem, 'In Flanders Fields' and said their thought and message should be every time they passed the Berrima War Memorial, 'We will remember them.'
