Description / Background

The foundation stone for the memorial hospital was laid on 9 October 1925 and it was officially opened on 3 October 1928. Inside the entry hall to the original hospital building is the honour roll which is comprised of three large white marble plaques attached to the brick wall. It was dedicated on 31 March 1927. The inscription and veterans' names are engraved and gilded on the plaques. In the hall there is also a photograph of the Anzac's landing at Gallipoli, plaques listing the life members of the hospital and, a handbill advertising a fundraising race meeting for the hospital which was dropped from the air by Sir Ross Smith in late 1919 as part of his historic flight from England to Australia.
