Scottsdale Municipality War MemorialPrint Page
The monument was originally erected to commemorate those who died in World War One. Additional plaques have been added to the monument to commemorate other conflicts.
Behind the memorial carved out of a macrocarpa tree are wooden sculptures representing Australia's involvement in World War One, World War Two and Vietnam.
With the permission of the Scottsdale Municipal Council the local branch of the R.S. and S. I .L. A. will shortly erect a concrete monument on the children's reserve bearing the inscription "In memoriam of our fallen soldiers". It has also been suggested that the town's war trophy, a machine gun should be placed in the reserve. It is the intention of soldiers to have the memorial in readiness for services on Anzac Day.
