This plaque was unveiled and dedicated
on 26th July 1995

To Commemorate and Dedicate a Memorial on the 50th Anniversary of the end of Australia's involvement in World War II and Victory in the Pacific (VP50).

To honour those Servicemen, Servicewomen, Allied Organisations, and all Residents of the Townsville Region, who gave their lives, service, and endured extreme difficulties in many ways.

We trust future generations of Australians appreciate and take heed of the loyalty and sacrifices given to ensure Australia remains free.

Lest We Forget
