The plaque commemorates the personnel who served in the 2nd / 11th Field Regiment during World War Two. The plaque location is indicated by a red poppy in the second image. 

The 2/11th Field Regiment was an Australian army artillery regiment formed as part of the Second Australian Imperial Force during World War II. Formed in Victoria in mid-1940, the regiment was deployed to the Middle East in 1941 and subsequently took part in the fighting against the Vichy French in the Syria-Lebanon Campaign. In early 1942, they were brought back to Australia in response to Japan's entry into the war, and in 1943 joined the garrison in Darwin. Throughout 1944–45, the regiment was deployed to New Guinea before supporting the 3rd Division`s campaign on Bougainville. After the war, the regiment was disbanded.
