2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. To commemorate this important year, the NSW Government interviewed WWII veterans about their experiences. Read our 75th Anniversary Stories.
The NSW War Memorials Register is a database of war memorials in New South Wales. It currently holds more than 3000 war memorial records, and more than 200,000 veteran records. The Register enables communities to record accurate information about war memorials, provides best practice information about war memorial conservation, and connects memorials and veterans to sustain NSW military and commemorative history.
The NSW Government is committed to documenting each memorial and veteran with care and respect. This can only be accomplished with contributions from local communities, local councils, RSL Sub Branches, our schools and our sponsors. Anyone can contribute to the Register and we encourage you to read more about how you can add or update records.
