             AUSTRALIA REMEMBERS 1945 -1995
The 50th Anniversary Of The End Of World War 11 (1939-1945) 

This Memorial Erected In The Year 1995, Being The 50th Anniversary Of The End Of World War 11, Honours The Sons And Daughters Of Australia Who Valiantly Served The Country During These Years of Hostilities, Many In Far Flung Lands, At Sea, On The Ground And In The Air. Many Rest Forever In These Foreign Lands. They Bravely Fought In All Theatres Of This War, In The North Atlantic, Europe, North Africa, The Middle East, The Mediterranean And Indian Oceans, South East Asia, The South West Pacific And In Their Homeland When It Was Attacked By The Enemy. Later They Served In The Occupation Force In Japan. Theirs Was A Brave And Selfless Tradition First Established By The Anzacs In World War 1 And Proudly Carried On For These Anzacs By This New Generation In World War 11, Thereby Keeping This Tradition Alive. 

Let Their Sacrifice And Valour Be Ever Remembered And Forever Remind Us Of The Heavy Price Paid By That Generation of Australians And Their Allies In Crushing The Tyranny Of That Time. Let Us Remember The 64 Bombing Raids Of Our Homeland In Darwin, The 41 Naval And Merchant Ships Sunk In Our Also Mined Waters, The Bombing Raids On Broome And Townsville, Shelling From The Sea Off Sydney And Newcastle, The Submarine Attacks On Sydney, Attacks Elsewhere On Our Shores, All Testify To The Realities Of The Danger This Country Faced, Often Unknown At The Time By Our People.

Let Us Remember The Many Who Also Played Their Part On The Home Front. We Acknowledge Our Debt To Them While Serving As Civilians In The Merchant Navy At Sea Transporting War Goods And Equipment, To The Girls Who Formed The Land Army Who Worked On The Land Providing Us With Food, To Others Who Worked In The Factories Building Aircraft, Tanks Making Ammunition And Other War Supplies, All Keeping This Country On A War Footing. They Worked Tirelessly For Those In The Armed Services, And In So Doing Helped Bring About Victory Over The Enemy.
