2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. To commemorate this important year, the NSW Government is interviewing WWII veterans about their experiences. Read our 75th Anniversary Stories.
The memorial is a white-painted obelisk, surrounded by post and chain fence. The memorial is decorated with a cutout of a digger at rest and a plaque which reads 'Lest we forget' above a stylised rising sun. Two flagpoles also are nearby.
LEST WE FORGET
William "Cobar" Williams 2496
Although officially banned from enlisting in World War I,
many Aboriginal men still signed up and saw active service.
One of these men was William "Cobar" Williams.
At the outbreak of war, he was working as a labourer. His next-of-kin was his
sister, Emily, who lived at Carowra Tank. When he decided to enlist, he was
27 years old.
