2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. To commemorate this important year, the NSW Government is interviewing WWII veterans about their experiences. Read our 75th Anniversary Stories.
The memorial consists of a large grey stone obelisk, positioned on a platform of three steps, often said to represent the Trinity. The platform is at the centre of a square of paving made of granite. Names of those who served in the First World War and dedications are inscribed on the sides of the memorial with gold lettering. Halfway up the obelisk on two sides are carved wreaths.
Recently, four smaller obelisks made of a similar stone have been added to the memorial, positioned at each corner of the square. They are dedicated to service personnel from the Second World War, Korea, Vietnam and the War on Terrorism. They also have names inscribed in gold lettering. A pair of old cannons was also added. All additions were completed by 26 April 2007.
Notes on veterans' names:
