Description

Large Marble Monument with Pillar and ball aloft

After the Mudgee Town Band had rendered "Boys of the Dardanelles," Ald. C. Knight, president of the Soldiers' Memorial Committee, said that they had been called together that day to unveil the Fallen Soldiers' Memorial, and to pay a tribute to the gallant men who had given up their lives for their country in order that those who came after them may live in freedom. After suitable addresses, four mothers of deceased soldiers then assisted in unveiling the memorial and Mr. Stan Searle sounded the "Last Post."
