Verdun War Memorial commemorates those who served in World Wars One and Two. The war memorial consists of a roll of honour listing the names of those who served in both conflicts.

A large crowd of residents and former residents attended the Verdun Jubilee celebrations recently when the procession, headed by the Hahndorf Town Band, was very colorful, each queen participating in the com petition having a float which was decorated by herself and her committee.  On Sunday afternoon the Premier of South Australia, the Hon. T. Playford, unveiled the roll of honor, which is built of Mt. Gambier freestone, to which is attached three plates bearing the names of those who served during World Wars I and II; in all the plates contain about 60 names. The Revs. N. C. Paynter and N. C. Gunthorpe took the service at which the Hahndorf Town Band led the singing of the hymns.
