Coolangatta Soldiers MemorialPrint Page
The Coolangatta Soldiers Memorial was erected by the citizens in memory of those who served King and Country during World War One.
The memorial was unveiled by Mr Joseph Francis M.H.R on the 29th August 1926. The memorial was very controversial at the time with the town council wanting to put a brick memorial in front of the Town Hall and the citizens and returned soldiers wanting a memorial obelisk at a different location .
