Inscription

Dedication 

Inverell War Memorial
Erected by the people of Inverell and district in proud and undying memory of their number who fell in the Great War. 1914–1918.

I with uncovered head,
salute the sacred dead
who went and who returned not - say not so!
Virtue treads paths that end not in the grave.
No ban of endless night exiles the brave
