The monument commemorates those from the district who did in service or were killed in action in World Wars One and Two.  

Little Mannahill, on the Broken Hill line, does not boast more than 100 citizens; but when it comes to community work the people can be as enthusiastic as those of the largest city. Recently, according to Mr. W. S. Dyer, a former Piriean, the townsfolk unveiled a war memorial to the fallen of two conflicts with the aid of Brig. M. J. Moten, C.B.E., D.S.O. Sixty-eight former servicemen marched in procession, including a veteran of the Boer War, and there were about 400 present, some having come long distances.
Recorder (Port Pirie, SA), 24 May 1950.
