Plaque commemorates those who served in the B24 Liberator Squadrons in the South West Pacific area during World War two. The plaque is situated on a Remembrance Wall at the Museum.

The B-24 Libertor was a heavy bomber in service in the air force of Australia during World War 1I and subsequent years. The B-24 was the main component of heavy bomber support in the Pacific theatre following a decision to remove B-17s from the theatre due to their shorter ranges and for logistic simplicity
