Description

 

This memorial commemorates those who served in the Korean War, and the conflicts in Malaya and Borneo. It consists of several brass plaques fixed to a rough-hewn granite plinth. The plinth sits within a large crazy-paved semi-circle with a low semi-circular concrete brick wall behind on which are mounted memorial brass plaques commemorating the deaths of returned servicemen. Above the wall are planted rosemary bushes for remembrance.

Three plaques are fixed to the plinth facing Marius Street. One plaque reads: "Korea 1950 – 1953 This memorial was erected to the memory of all those who served. Lest We Forget.” The other plaque reads: "Malaya and Borneo 1950-1967. Lest We Forget".

This monument, along with several other war memorials, is located in front of Tamworth Railway Station in a park known as Railway War Memorial Park and lies within the curtilage of heritage-listed train station.
