Monument constructed by Italian Prisoners-of-War at Murchison Camp 13 is believed to commemorate Italian sailors, due to the anchor on the monument who had died during World War Two.

The names on the monument are hard to read, but are listed in the Italian Memorial Ossario in the Murchison Cemetery.

Note : This monument is on private land and is not accessible to members of the public. Monument Australia thanks John Gribben of the Greater Shepparton City Council for organising access to obtain the monument photographs
