The fence and gate were erected in memory of John George Brown for his work for ex-soldiers and the Soldiers` Memorial. John Brown died in 1928. 

A public meeting convened by the Pittsworth Chamber of Commerce for the purpose of arranging a suitable memorial to the late Mr George Brown was held in the Masonic Hall on Saturday afternoon, January 28. A resolution of condolence with the relatives was passed by all silently standing. Mr H Keefer, as president of the Pittsworth Chamber of Commerce presided and explained the objects of the meeting. After some discussion it was unanimously agreed that as the late Mr Brown had been such a keen worker in the proposed soldiers' memorial movement it would be fitting that some memorial in connection with that movement would be appropriate, and it was decided that such memorial take the form of a gate or entrance to the soldiers' memorial.
