Denmark War MemorialPrint Page
Denmark War Memorial is a white rendered brick wall with a clock in the middle and two stone tablets engraved with the names of those who gave their lives in the World War One, World War Two, Malaya, Korea and Vietnam.
The original brick War Memorial , the central wall with the clock, was erected in 1932 by Mr Samson Myslis M.C.I. on behalf of Messrs Caris Brothers. Funds for the memorial had been collected for some years but had been held by the Trustees as they did not think they had sufficient funds for the memorial's construction. The Memorial was unveiled on Anzac Day 1932 by the Reverend A. Lawrence, President of the local branch of the Returned Services League. In 1936, wrought iron gates at the entrance to the memorial were donated and constructed by Mr Pristner who was a former resident of Denmark.
