Photographs supplied by John Huth

The Surat Town Water Scheme commemorates those who died in service or were killed in action in World War Two.

The Surat Town Water Supply Scheme and the Memorial Park were officially opened by the Minister for Public Works and Housing, Mr Paul Hilton on the 9th June 1951. Mr Hilton said the Memorial Park was a fitting thanksgiving to those who had fought and paid the supreme sacrifice.

The park adjoining the water supply buildings was an expression of the people's regard for soldiers of the Shire who had fought for freedom and a plaque was attached to the memorial gates bearing the names of those who gave their lives in the Second World War.
