Front Inscription

In memory of Francis J. Bell  ANZAC and member of the Kyneton R.S.L. 1895 - 1966
This plaque is placed in gratitude for his initiating this final tribute to R.S.L. Members.

This new flag-pole, erected in 1996, replaced the original, then situated south of the cenotaph.  It was donated by Dr Greg McIntyre, and installed with a grant from Australia Remembers (1945 - 1995), in co-operation with the Kyneton R.S.L. and the family of the late Francis J. Bell

Cherish freedom & peace so dearly won & held

The flag is flown at half mast on the death of a member of the Kyneton R.S.L.
