Dutton Park War MemorialPrint Page
Dutton Park War Memorial was erected in memory of the fallen of World War One and World War Two. A plaque was added at a later date to commemorate the fallen of Korea, Malaya, Vietnam and Borneo.
Teams of volunteers added eight feet to the height of a soldiers memorial at Dutton Park in a race to complete it by Anzac Day. The memorial and a Garden of Remembrance are being built by the Dutton Park Returned Servicemen's League Sub-Branch to the memory of the dead of two World Wars. The sub-branch publicity officer, Mr W. A Peters said that he thought the column would be almost finished in time for the unveiling of the memorial by the Governor, Sir John Lavarack on Anzac Day.
