Raymond Terrace War Memorial was originally erected in memory of the men from Raymond Terrace who served in World War One. The memorial now commemorates those who served in other conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The Raymond Terrace and district soldlers' memorial was unveiled and dedicated in the presence of a large gathering on Saturday. Alderman J. M. Feeney, the Mayor of Raymond Terrace, in the course of his introductory remarks, explained the circumstances under which the memorial had been erected. He then called upon Councillor T. H. Pearse, president of the Port Stephens Shire, who gave an address, eulogislng the Australian soldiers, and referring to the wonderful name they had made for the country in the great war. The memorial was unveiled by Mrs. Burton, and the fence surrounding it by Mrs. G. H. Pepper. The dedication ceremony was performed by General J. Paton C.B., of Newcastle.
