The Berrima War Memorial commemorates those who served in both World Wars . It also contains a plaque to commemorate those who died in service or were killed action, and the Unknown Australian Soldier.

In proxity to the monument, are plaques and seats which commemorate service personnel.

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.'
