Photographs supplied by Sandra Brown

The Memorial was originally erected in memory of those who died in service or were killed in action during World War Two. The names of those who lost their lives in the Korean War were added to the memorial at a later date.

At a recent meeting of the Narrandera War Memorial Association Committee it was decided to erect a memorial to the fallen in World War II at a cost not exceeding £1000. The site for the proposed memorial will be in the Memorial Gardens in Victoria Avenue. A sub-commlttee was elected to prepare designs for submission to the committee. Its members are: Ald. P. C. Garner (chairman). Messrs. E. S. Cameron, R. H. Hankinson and J. L. Molr, with power to co-opt the services of others. An appeal will be made for funds. Applications for the necessary information from which to compile a list of the fallen will be made to the various churches and to the R.S.L.
