Exeter War Memorial GatesPrint Page
Exeter War Memorial Gates commemorate those who served in World War One and World War Two.
His Excellency the Governor, Lieut.-General John Northcott, has graciously accepted the invitation of the Welfare Committee to unveil the War Memorial at Exeter. The function has been arranged for Sunday afternoon, February 12, at 3 p.m., and the committee is making provision for a large gathering of ex-soldiers and citizens to witness the ceremony.
The memorial takes the form of entrance gates to the picturesque Exeter Park, and the adoption of a memorial of such general utility has won many friends for the Welfare Committee. The side panels and pillars have been constructed in Bundanoon sandstone, bearing suitable tablets, setting out that the memorial stands to the honour of those who fell or gave other sacrificing service in either of the two World Wars.
