Plaque :
In 1928 a row of Cypress Pines was planted on 
this site. It was in memory of those from the 
Towamba district who lost their lives in the 
First World War and also commemorated the 
tenth anniversary of the end of the war.
 These elms were planted in 
2006 to replace the original pines 
which stood proudly here for over 
          seven decades.
