The cairn commemorates soldier settler families from World War Two who settled in Loxton.

After World War Two, the war service land settlement scheme expanded to the Loxton Irrigation Area and the Cooltong Division of Chaffey. The Returned Services League (RSL) had lobbied the Government to open up land for returned soldiers at Loxton, and people learnt about the scheme at the RSL and in handout material.
