Liston / Amosfield War Memorial  commemorates those who served in World Wars One and Two. It was originally in the Amosfield school grounds in memory of those from the district who lost their lives in World War One.  The memorial was removed around 1964 and rededicated in Liston.

An example to the surrounding districts has been set by the beautiful memorial just unveiled at Amosfield to the memory of fallen soldiers from Amosfield, Lisbon (sic), and Willson's Downfall, 35 in number. The monument, which stands in the school grounds, consists of marble and ashlar on a three-tier base of freestone, bearing on top a life-like statue of a "digger" in uniform. Lieut.-Col. Bruxner, M.L.A., performed the ceremony. There were congratulatory speeches end devotional singing, and the Stanthorpe Band was in attendance. The sculptors were Bruce Brothers,Toowoomba.
