Magill War MemorialPrint Page Print this page

Magill War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate the fallen of World War One. A Plaque was added to the memorial at a later date to commemorate the fallen of World War Two.

An impressive ceremony marked the unveiling on Sunday by Brigadier-General Leane of a fallen soldiers memorial at Magill. Thirty three men who had enlisted from the district made the supreme sacrifice. The monument stands in a portion of the Magill school grounds. It is an artistically designed marble stone and bears the names of the dead. The money for the work was raised by public subscription at the suggestion of the Magill Progress Association the secretary of which 
(Mr. I. Simcock) did most of the organising work. A large crowd witnessed the service.
The Advertiser (Adelaide), 15 November 1920.
