The plaque commemorates the over-subscription to the Peace Loan in 1919.

During World War One, to finance the war the Commonwealth had a series of war loans, and then peace loans. To recover the cost of the war and fund soldier pensions the government launched 'Peace Loan' campaigns after the war. Peace loans were similar to the war loans where people loaned money to the government and received interest.

Up to yesterday Mildura had subscribed £46,540 to the Peace Loan.  A letter from the Loan Committee declares that if the quota of £48,000 is subscribed by the 7th October Mildura will be entitled to Bronze Honor Tablet.
