2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. To commemorate this important year, the NSW Government interviewed WWII veterans about their experiences. Read our 75th Anniversary Stories.
The memorial is a bronze plaque located in Remembrance Place, Murwillumbah. In the top left-hand corner is a Light Horseman mounted on his horse and in the top right-hand corner is the emblem of the National Servicemen's Association 1951-1972.
The memorial was unveiled by Colonel Tom Harwood on 11 November 2017, and dedicated by Reverend Graeme Hodgkinson.
The plaque is the result of co-operation between the Tweed Valley-Murwillumbah Sub Branch of the National Servicemen's Association and the Murwillumbah RSL Sub Branch. It was created with the assistance of the Department of Veterans' Affairs "Saluting Their Service" Commemorative Grants Program.
Remembrance Place is the setting for Anzac Day and other commemorative services.
