Kaimkillenbun War Memorial Print Page
Kaimkillenbun War Memorial honours those who served in World War One, World War Two and Vietnam.
The original digger memorial was an Australian soldier in dress uniform standing at ease and was unveiled by W J Vowles, Leader of the Opposition on 13th November 1920 in memory of those who fought and those who fell in World War One. The names of the fallen are on the front of the memorial which also contains the names of the fallen in World War Two.
After the original war memorial was knocked over in a traffic accident, the Kaimkillenbun memorial was replaced by a similar one in the local park behind the hotel. It features an Australian digger in dress uniform standing at ease. His rifle points skyward and a tree stump behind his right leg provides supports. The original mason was R C Ziegler, and using original plans, the replacement digger was also prepared by Zieglers.
