Doubtful Creek Public School Memorial GatesPrint Page
Doubtful Creek Public School Memorial Gates commemorate those who died in service or were killed in action during World War Two.
Wednesday.—A public meeting at Doubtful Creek decided to erect memorial gates and pylons in front of the school in honour of servicemen from the area who were killed in the last war. It was stated that the Education Department had agreed to erect a fence four chains long. The pylons will have plaques on them bearing the names of two former pupils who lost their lives —Pte. A. J. Beasley, who was killed in the Middle East, and Pte. Gess, who was killed in the Darwin area. The words "To those who served" will form an arch over the top of the gates. The gates and pylons will cost about £30. It is hoped to raise the amount by public subscription. Messrs. L. Harris and A. Strong were appointed collectors.
