Crows Nest War Memorial includes a "Digger" statue and was originally erected to commemorate those who served in World War One. Additional names were inscribed on the memorial at a later date to commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War Two.

The Crows Nest Soldiers Memorial was unveiled on the 15th July 1922 by Brigadier-General J.C. Robertson. The monument is surmounted by a figure of a soldier and the marble tablets contain the names of 176 men, 26 of whom were killed in action. A procession of school children, returned soldiers and members of the Hibernian and Oddfellows Lodges marched through the principal streets to the memorial.
