Front Inscription

World War II 1939 - 1945

This memorial, erected in the year of the 50th anniversary of the conclusion of World War II honours the sons and daughters of Australia who served our country during those years of hostilities on the ground, in the air and at sea.

Many rest forever in foreign lands.

They fought in Europe, North Africa, the Mediterranean, South East Asia and the Pacific in the brave and selfless tradition established by the ANZACs in World War I.

We acknowledge our debt to them and recognise those who as civilians worked tirelessly in the factoriesm on the land or from home to support them.

Lest we forget
