The cairn was erected by Stamford "Tiger " Simpson to commemorate the end of World War One.  He served in Gallipoli and France. The 10th Battalion Association erected a sign to signify this thanks with a grant from the ANZAC Day Commemoration Council.

Private Stamford "Tiger" Wallace Simpson, of Kangaroo Island, was an original member of the 10th Battalion AIF and a member of the First Expeditionary Force. Simpson survived the war and built a cairn of limestone rock atop a hill overlooking Pelican Lagoon in memory of his mates who did not return.
