Dennington Memorial Trees
Dennington Memorial Trees

The trees commemorate nine soldiers from the district who died in service or were killed in action during World War One.   An olive tree was planted for each soldier.

Dennington's lost Diggers were given a fitting heroes' recognition on Saturday when nine plaques laid in their honour were officially unveiled during the Anzac Day centenary commemmoration.

A crowd estimated at 600 turned out to a street march and service at the town's cenotaph where nine olive trees had recently been planted at the plaques and a new path laid.

Replica poppies were laid at each of the memorial spots for the soldiers killed in action, some of whom had been born elsewhere, but were connected to the area.
