War Animals MemorialPrint Page Print this page

Photographs supplied by Stephen Warren

The plaque commemorates all the animals that have served our nation in war and peace and the sacrifice they have made in battlefields across the world. 

Animals have played a very significant role in assisting our defence forces over the years and the memorial plaque is to show support for the many dogs, horses, mules, donkeys, camels and pigeons who have bravely served Australia. The recognition of animals in war is not new as three pigeons had been awarded the Dickin Medal - the equivalent of a Victoria Cross - in World War One and a British mine detection dog in Afghanistan has also received the same award.
