Mannahill War Memorial Print Page
The Mannahill War Memorial commemorates those from the district who lost their lives in both World Wars. The Memorial is an obelisk of marble blocks topped with a lamp on a steel support.
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.
