Bundamba War Memorial Print Page
Bundamba War Memorial commemorates residents from the district who have served in all wars and conflicts. The memorial was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One.
The original Digger memorial was vandalized and destroyed on 19th March 2000, and funds were raised for a replacement of the memorial which had been unveiled on 28th November 1919. Queensland's Governor, Major General Peter Arnison, unveiled the replacement digger on 11th November 2000. In November 2013, a new plaque was added to the memorial to commemorate four soldiers who lost their lives during World War Two and whose service had remained unrecognised in Ipswich.
The Honour Stone which has been erected to those who volunteered for active service from the Bundamba district was unveiled on the 29th November 1919 by the Governor of Queensland, Sir Hamilton Goold-Adams. The Model Band and Thistle Pipe Band rendered appropriate music.
