Commemorating 100 years of ANZAC spirit

1914 - 1918

Lest We Forget 

There are 41 brass discs inlaid in the path leading to the memorial plinths. These have been laid in honour of the 40 soldiers from this area who died as a part of their service in WW1.  A single brass disc is located in the centre of the path in memory of the unknown soldier and to all those who died in National service.
