The Gladstone World War Two Honour Board commemorates those who served in the Second World War.

Anzac Day services embraced the 36th Commemoration Day service, the unveiling of the honor roll of World War Two containing about 200 names, and the official opening of the War Memorial gates at Tresylva Park. The president of the sub-branch (Mr. H. R. Price ) welcomed Brigadier Moten, who gave an address and unveiled the honor roll. The names of the fallen in both wars were read by Mr. J. W. Prior. After the service a procession marched to Tresylva Park where the newly erected memorial gates were dedicated bv the Rev. C. L. Pitman and officially opened by Brigadier Moten.
