The Cobargo and District Soldiers Memorial is a granite block construction with large granite plaque in the centre listing the names of those who served in the First World War. To either side are brass plaques listing the names from the Second World War, the Korean and Vietnam Wars. To the side of these are smaller inscribed plaques with quotations. To the far left is an original First World War Roll of Honor from Dignam Creek and at the center rear is a single white flagpole.
A memorial committee made up of local women met in May 1933 to revive plans for a war memorial that had lapsed for a number of years. The original committee of local men was set up in 1919. Funds collected locally by the first committee were returned and then given to the 1933 committee, along with interest earned in the 14 year interim. The plans to construct the monument were accepted by the committee in July 1934. Mr D. B. Sheperdson, a monumental architect from Sydney, designed the memorial and oversaw its construction. The memorial was unveiled by the State Governor, on 16 November 1935.

Their story is not graven only on stone over their native earth.
There is no glory like his who saves his country.
