Duntroon Memorial StonesPrint Page
Duntroon Memorial Stones were placed in memory of the Australian Army Officer Training Establishment graduates who have died on active service, war service or United Nations peacekeeping duties.
The tablets commemorate officers who were killed in various wars in the following order, from south to north: graduates of Officer Cadet School, Portsea; RMC (Royal Military College) graduates in wars in Korea, Vietnam and Lebanon; RMC graduates in World War One; RMC graduates in World War Two; graduates of the Officer Training Unit, Scheyville.
A memorial to the graduates of the Royal Military College who lost their lives in World War II. will be unveiled at the College on Anzac Day by the Chief of the General staff, Lieut-General S. P. Rowell. The memorial will be in the form of a tablet, and will be similar to the memorial to graduates who died in World War I. It will contain 56 names of graduates of the College, including 14 New Zealanders, and will be placed near the flagpole on the parade ground. It is hoped at a future date to erect a similar tablet to graduates who have lost their lives in the Korean war. Before the unveiling ceremony on Anzac Day, there will be a ceremonial parade. The salute will be taken by Lieut.-General Rowell.
