Tenterfield & District Soldiers MemorialPrint Page
The Soldiers Memorial Hall was originally erected to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in World War One. Plaques have been added on the walls to commemorate those who served in other conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
Tenterfield's Jubilee will be celebrated by a carnival on Nov. 22, 23, and 24. The object is to raise funds for the erection of a municipal band rotunda and a Fallen Soldiers' Memorial Hall. The Governor-General will lay the foundation stone of the Memorial Hall. A queen competition will be held in connection with the carnival. Many leading Sydney firms are assisting by donations of cash and trophies.
