BOGAN GATE WAR MEMORIAL

Residents of Bogan Gate and District built this war memorial to honour those who fought and died for us. The monument was dedicated on September 9th, 1922, by Goobang Shire President, Mr. John Whitmill.

During 2002, the Bogan Gate War Memorial Committee commenced a project to restore the monument clock which had not worked for approximately 70 years. The project was funded by the Federal Government Commemmorative Grant Program, titled 'Their Service, Our Heritage' and local donations.

This plaque was unveiled by Federal Member for Parkes Mr John Cobb MP, Anzac Day 2004. To celebrate completion of the clock restoration project.
