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.
This memorial hall is located on the grounds of St Aidan's Church, Exeter. Built in 1922, it was dedicated on 22 November 1922 by the Rev. Canon Carver to all who served in the First World War on behalf of "Australia [...] Great Britain and her allies".
Inside the hall is a polished timber board measuring approximately 7 ft 6 in wide and 4 ft high, with an inscription in gold lettering. Above the board, is a lead-light stained glass window with a quote from St John Chapter 15, Verse 13 from the King James Bible.
In the photograph of St Aidan's Church, the memorial hall is visible in the background, behind the historical church bell.
