Milton War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. The names of those who served in World War Two were added to the memorial at a later date. The memorial also contains plaques to to other confrontations in which Australia has been involved.

The district memorial was on Saturday before a large gathering. The Mayor introduced Major-General C. F. Cox, who performed the ceremony. There are 91 names on the memorial, including the names of 13 soldiers who were killed. Five gained distinction. One nurse from the district was killed in action and gained the Royal Red Cross. The monument cost £300.
