Grey granite Monument with etched gold inscription with 70 names of those who died in WWI and WW2
"The Governor (Sir William Allardyce), accompanied by Lady Allardyce, and attended by Captain Pope, yesterday unveiled a monument to those men of the Port Cygnet municipality who laid down their lives in the Great War. The Governor then unveiled the memorial, which was in the form of a handsome granite obelisk, standing on a commodious plot of ground in the very centre of the main street, and is the outcome of the efforts of the Port Cygnet Patriotic Committee.
It bears the following inscription:-"This monument is erected by the people in honour of those who gave their lives for King and Empire in the Great War, 1914-1918." The monument itself had cost £176, and the plot of ground £170, and subscriptions towards the liquidation of the debt were well in hand."
