This Memorial Honours The Commitment Of Australians
Who served alongside Britain and her Allies
In defence of freedom in the first and Second World Wars
The battle sites are representative of the many places where Australians, together with their comrades, fought and died
The place names record the origins of Australian servicemen and women many of whom were born in the United Kingdom and elsewhere. Each is a reminder of the impact of war on families and communities
The flow of water over these names evokes memories of service, suffering and sacrifice
