Tobruk Reserve Memorial

Description

Four sandstone columns on a lighter coloured sandstone plinth with a central honour roll.Notes on Veteran names: No records for a deceased veteran by the name of W H Dickson of this area can be found. Nor can the details of death for the veterans V J Budin and J D McLean be found. The status codes for these veterans have been left as KIA as that is what is indicated by the memorial. Status codes for all other deceased veterans have been taken from information on the Australian War Memorial Roll of Honour and Commemorative Roll, the CWGC database, Australian National Archives records and New Zealand Cenotaph records. V J Budin is given on the memorial as V J Buden, J D McLean is given on the memorial as J D MacLean, and K C Scribner is given as C K Scribner. A J Russell and C V Russell were also POWs and may have been so when they died. The deaths of C F Burke and P A Butcher may have been accidental as they occurred in Australia.

Inscription

They, whom this memorial commemorates, were numbered amongst those who, at the call of King and Country, left all that was dear to them, faced danger and finally passed out of the sight of men by the path of duty and self sacrifice, giving up their own lives that others might live in freedom let those who come after see to it that their names be not forgotten

Erected by the Council of the Municipality of Waterloo M. V. Neilson – Mayor – 1947
