TO THE GLORY OF GOD

This plaque was presented by the Newcastle
Australia Remembers Committee on 13 August 1995
on the occasion of an Ecumenical Service held
in the Christ Church Cathedral to commemorate the
50th anniversary of the end of World War II
on 15 August 1945.

The plaque is dedicated to the memory of all
those citizens of the Newcastle and Hunter Region
who served their country during World War II
(1939 - 1945), as members of the Defence Forces
and in various civilian roles, and also those who
have lost loved ones as a result of that conflict.
