Westbury War MemorialPrint Page
Westbury War Memorial commmemorates those who have served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected to commemorate the fallen of World War One.
The Warden (Hon. G. H. Pitt) presided over a large and representative gathering at Westbury last night, which had assembled to decide which form the soldiers' memorial should take. Mr. D. Burke spoke in favour of a monument being erected on Lonsdale Promenade. Mr. Heathcote moved--"That the meeting decide to erect a monument on Lonsdale Promenade opposite the Council Chamber to perpetuate the memory of the fallen soldiers, the form to be decided by a committee appointed." Mr. D. Burke seconded the motion, which was carried unanimously.
