Terowie War MemorialPrint Page
A monument commemorates Australian servicemen and women who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved.
The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who lost their lives in World War One. The Memorial is a marble World War One soldier on a limestone and granite obelisk, who stands at ease, left foot slightly forward, holding a bayoneted rifle.
For some time the residents of Terowie have been working hard to raise funds for the erection of a suitable memorial to the memory of those men, from the Terowie District Council area, who made the supreme sacrifice in the great war 1914-1918. That their efforts were successful was amply demonstrated on Friday afternoon last, when the beautiful marble monument was unveiled by the Hon. T. Pascoe in the presence of a very large gathering of residents from all parts of the district, who, with the school children sang "The Song of Australia" at 3 pm.
