Parkes Roll of Honour commemorates those who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The roll, consisting of marble plaques, was originally unveiled in 1951 to commemorate those who served in both World Wars. The names of those who served in Korea and Vietnam were added at a later date.
