The plaque commemorates the 75th anniversary of the Australian Red Cross in New South Wales.

The Australian Red Cross was established in 13 August 1914, nine days after the start of World War One, by Lady Helen Munro Ferguson, when she formed a branch of the British Red Cross, which is a branch of the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement.  Lady Helen wrote to the mayors of every shire and municipality in Australia asking them to initiate a local branch. Typically, a letter was published in the local newspaper and a meeting called.
