Description / Background

The memorial is a white-brick wall, elevated on a white-brick platform, which is positioned on a concrete base. There are a number of plaques attached to the wall, including an eight-panel honour roll for those who served in the Second World War and separate plaques for decorated veterans. The eighth honour roll panel, titled 'Lest We Forget' and located on the eastern side of the memorial, was originally in the Glen Innes and District Services Club. It was installed on the memorial when the foyer of the club was renovated.
