The Cowes War Memorial was erected in 1926 in memory of the men of Phillip Island who made the supreme sacrifice in World War One. Names of the fallen from World War Two were added at a later date. 

New inscription plaques have been placed on the memorial and the original inscription on the front of the memorial has been replaced by one dedicated to the fallen of both World Wars.
