Monument characteristics

Grey granite obelisk surmounted by a granite ball

On Anzac Day the soldiers' memorial was unveiled at Howlong. This monument is built of Harcourt granite on a basalt foundation. Numerous wreaths were placed on the monument. The inscription on the memorial reads: — "Erected by the residents of Howlong and district in honor of those who served, and in loving memory of those who fell in the Great War, 1914-18. Bromfield, W. H. ; Hartley, D. ; Koehn. F. W. ; Kruse, W. ; Leseberg, J.A. ; Murdoch, W. R. ; Proctor, W. ; Sheehan, J. ; Wilkinson, W."  These are the men who fell, a separate honor roll having been already unveiled to those who served. The monument and fence are to cost approximately £360. The ladies of Howlong raised £100 by means of a bazaar and sale of work, and £93 was handed over by the Red Cross ladies at Howlong.
