Description

The memorial fountain is established in Fotheringham Park, Taree.

In 1960 The Manning River Branch of the Air Force Association installed a fountain in memory of fallen comrades. 

The fountain fell into disrepair and in October 2015 a memorial fountain was re-dedicated in the park. The restoration was funded by contributions from RSL members, a Department of Veterans Affairs 'Saluting Their Service Grant', the Manning Valley Branch Air Force Association, Mid Coast Water, Greater Taree City Council and Street Furniture, Australia.
