Memorial erected by the Wangaratta Borough and Shire was originally erected to commemorate those who died on active service service in World War One.  Their names are listed on the monument.

Names of those who have died in subsequent conflicts have been added to the monument at a later date. The memorial also contains a plaque unveiled in 2006 commemorating the 40th anniversary of the Battle of Long Tan.
