The Kingston SE War Memorial commemorates those who lost their lives in World War One and World War Two.

Kingston, October 23. There was a very large gathering of residents of the town and district at the unveiling of the monument to our local fallen soldiers to-day. The ceremony was performed by the Minister for Repatriation (the Hon. G. Laffer).

The Minister withdrew the flags, when was revealed the figure of a soldier in white marble standing on a granite base, reaching in all 15 feet in height. The cost was £315. On the front panel of the base is the inscription "Erected by the residents of Kingston and districts in memory of those who made the supreme sacrifice in the great war." On the side panels are inscribed the names of the fallen.
The Narracoorte Herald (SA), 5 November 1920.
