Redland Bay War MemorialPrint Page
Redland Bay War Memorial was originally erected to commemorate the fallen of World War One. Plaques were added to the memorial at a later date to commemorate the fallen of World War Two. A National Service plaque is attached to the memorial commemorating the 187 National Servicemen who paid the supreme sacrifice between 1951 and 1972.
A large gathering witnessed the unveiling on July 1st 1923 of the war memorial erected by local returned soldiers. The memorial is situated on land, near the jetty granted by the Shire Council, and in the course of his remarks the chairman (Mr. T. P. Outridge) outlined the work of the local branch of the R.S.S.I.L.A. in trying to secure a better site. The ceremony of unveiling was performed by General Spencer Browne.
