Description

The memorial board made of wood and lists 22 veterans from the church who signed up for the First World War. While the memorial doesn't explicitly mention the Concord Baptist Church, all identified veterans have links to the area.

Three of the veterans listed died while on service. Private H E Rogers was killed in action in France and his brother Second Lieutenant G T Rogers died of wounds while also serving in France. Sapper A Townsend also died of wounds in France.

Three of the veterans listed could not be identified with confidence from the Concord locality or surrounding areas on the AIF and the NAA databases. For more information, see notes at the veteran pages for W Kemblo, T McDougal and C Wearne.

The memorial board can be found in the Concord Baptist Church, which was opened in 1910.
