Windellama War MemorialPrint Page
Windellama War Memorial was originally erected in memory of those from the district who died in service or were killed in action during World War One. The names of those who lost their lives in World War Two were added to the memorial at a later date.

The unveiling of the soldiers' memorial at Windellama took place on Saturday afternoon. The ceremony was performed by Cr. A. Henderson, who was visibly moved by the solemnity of the occasion. He spoke feelingly of the brave lads who had lost their lives in the Great War-lads he had watched grow to manhood, who now had made the supreme sacrifice that the British Empire might be free. Mr. Jack Sweeney acted as chairman. Mr. Lindsay Broadhead (president of the Shire) was present, and made a short impromptu speech. Despite the inclemency of the weather there was a large and representative gathering. The relatives and friends of the fallen boys placed wreaths upon the memorial, and all present paid silent homage to their deathless valour.
