The War Memorial Clocktower commemorates those who have served in conflicts in which Australia has been involved. The memorial was originally erected in memory of those who died in service or were killed in action during World War One. 

On Tuesday the committee to which the work has been relegated met, and after consideration of the various prices for the clock for the memorial tower in Broadway, accepted that of Mr. A. C. Spiers. This clock will be imported direct from Scotland, and will be selected by Mr. Mitchell (father of  Mr. F. Mitchell, Cootamundra, who will supervise its erection in Junee). It will stand about forty feet high, and have hands three feet long. The names of the soldiers will be in trachite, under the clock.

The Junee Soldiers Memorial, which for years was only a vision, is about to be a reality. A memorial clock has been erected in Broadway in honour of our dead. The unveiling ceremony will take place on May 21 (Empire Day).
