The monument was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. The monument now commemorates those who have served in subsequent conflicts in which Australia has been involved.

The celebration of Anzac Day 1925 was marked at Bayswater by the unveiling of a handsome memorial to the soldiers who had enlisted from the district and had not returned. The unveiling ceremony was performed by Major General Sir Talbot Hobbs, who complimented the residents of the district upon the memorial, which was a full warranty for the sincerity of their remembrance of the Anzac heroes
