Australia Remembers 1945 - 1995
The Derrinallum community proudly commemorates the 50th anniversary of the end of World War II and pays tribute to all who served our country, in either military, or non military roles.
We especially remember our local ex-service men and women, together with the settlers, who came from all parts of Victoria, to establish farms in this district after the wars, including their kindred organisations :- the Derrinallum Sub Branch RSL, the 15th District Board, Legacy and the Local Repatriation Committee.
We pay tribute to their contribution to the development of Derrinallum and the expansion of primary production in this district.
