Leopold War Memorial

Commemorating 100 years of ANZAC spirit

1914 - 1918

Dedicated to the sacred memory of the two young women and 164 young men from Leopold, Moolap, Curlewis and Wallington who enlisted in the Australian armed forces in WW1 and through their deeds and sacrifice forged a place in the ANZAC legend.

Lest we forget.

There are 41 brass discs inlaid in the path leading to the memorial plinths.  These have been laia in honour of the 40 soldiers from this area who died as a part of their service in WW1.  A single brass disc is located in the centre of the path in memory of the unknown soldier and to all those who died in national service.
