The War Memorial was originally erected in 1950 to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One and World War Two. An additional plaque was added to the memorial to commemorate those who lost their lives in later conflicts. Further plaques have been added to the memorial. 

Note: A New War Memorial unveiled to commemorate the centenary of Anzac is located near the memorial.
