A monument commemorates those from the district who died in service or were killed in action during World Wars One and Two.   It was originally erected to commemorate World War One. 

The Lockhart War Memorial Committee has made arrangements to unveil the war memorial monument in the Recreation Reserve on Anzac Day. A commemoration service will be held in connection with the ceremony, a special order having been prepared by a subcommittee. Mr. R. T. Ball, Minister for Agriculture, has been invited to unveil the monument with the assistance of Mr. Walter Day, and Mr. R. S. Drummond, manager of the State Wheat Board. The Lockhart District Returned Soldiers and the Lockhart Band will be in attendance. A suitable opportunity will be given during the ceremony for private persons to place wreaths on the monument.
