Glass cases enclose the colours of the 1st, and 2nd, 11th, 16th, 28th and 44th Infantry Battalions and of the 10th Light Horse Regiment. Bronze plaques on the outside wall of the crypt entrance list under Navy, Army, Airforce, Women’s Services and Merchant Navy, nearly 4000 Western Australians killed or who died from effects of World War Two.

Inside the crypt on a marble tablet are the names of Western Australians killed in Korea (1950-1953), Malaya (1950-1960), Borneo (1962-1966) and Vietnam (1962-1973).
