Notes on Veteran Names:

No records can be found for deceased veterans with the following names from this area:

R Barkell, F Billingham, R R Brown, A S Clingham, R Downing, V Hurley, W Martin, C Singer, G Wallis and Gus Wynne.

 

In addition, there are a number of deceased veterans in this area named W Gibson or A Pearce - the available information could not dientify which of these are the individuals named on this memorial.

The status codes for these veterans have therefore been left as KIA. All other status codes have been taken from information provided by the Australian War Memorial Roll Of Honour, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission databases, and records in the National Archives of Australia.

W G Baird is given on the memorial as G Baird, and W Pigott is given on the memorial as W Piggott.
