Dungog Memorial RSL Club and Memorials

Description

The Dungog Memorial Hall was dedicated on 4 September 1920 in honour of those who served and fell in the First World War. It is now home to the Dungog Memorial RSL Club. The site contains several memorials, including an obelisk in a paved courtyard, honour rolls for the First and Second World Wars, and tablets for Women's Services from 1914-1919 and National Service from 1951-1972. The tablet for Women's Services is inset into the top of the arch giving entrance to the obelisk area, and was unveiled on 25 April 1925. The tablet for National Service was unveiled much later on 28 November 2003.
