Obelisk consisting of four grey granite blocks.

In spite of the very inclement weather, a large number of the residents of Nunamara district and of Patersonia, Patricks Rivers and still further afield gathered here on Saturday when Mr J.C Newton M.L.A.  performed the ceremony of unveiling the memorial to fallen soldiers of the district. He stressed that the need for remembrance was the debt we owe to our brave men, which the monument would always stand as a reminder. Lieut. Col. R.E.Smith also gave a short address.
