This plaque is in remembrance of all those servicemen and women who served in all theatres of war in which Australia has been involved and who made the supreme sacrifice in defence of their country

Relocated World War 2
Ex-servicemen memorial plaque

In 1919, the World War 1 ex-servicemen from the Epping District formed a small social group furthering their common interests and mateship from wartime.  This group later to become the Epping RSL sub-branch of the NSW Branch of the Returned and Servies League of Australia.

On moving from their meeting hall to their larger premises in Oxford Street, this memorial was resited on that building.

Following the sale of that building, in 1995 the Epping Club was relocated to Rawson Street.

This plaque is now reset here, in this Memorial Area, Boronia Park Epping, to the memory of the ex-service personnel of the Epping District from the Second World War.

Erected by the members of the Epping RSL sub-Branch

This memorial remembers the sacrifices of the sons and daughters of Australia, who served their country during hostilities on the ground, in the air and at sea.  Many rest forever in foreign lands.  Their brave and selfless contribution to the maintenance of world peace remembered.

Their sacrifices and valour forever remind us of the heavy price paid by the generations of Australians in crushing tyranny of those times.

We acknowledge the debt to them and recognise all those who worked tirelessly in the factories on the land or at home to support them
