The Jarrahdale War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate those from the district who died in service or were killed in action in World War One.

A plaque has been added to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two.

On Saturday last an impressive ceremony took place at picturesque Jarrahdale, when Archbishop Riley unveiled a memorial to the fallen soldiers of the district. Addresses were also delivered by the Rev. Father T. O 'Grady, Mr. P. O'Loghlen, M.L.A., Mr. W. J. George (Minister for Works), and Miss R. Rudeforth.

               THEY
WHOM THIS MONUMENT
    COMMEMORATES
Are Numbered Among Those Who At
The Call Of King And Country, Left All
That Was Dear To Them, Endured Hardness,
Faced Danger, And Finally Passed Out Of The
Sight Of Men By The Path Of Duty And Self -
Sacrifice.  Giving Up Their Own Lives That
Others Might Live In Freedom.
Let Those Who Come After See To It That
Their Names Be Not Forgotten.
