Affectionately known as the 'Mothers' Memorial"
The memorial constructed after the conclusion of World War 1 had four panels. Prior to its relocation in 1985 to the East Creek site, the Eastern panel below, representing the front of the memorial, faced toward the intersection of Ruthven and Margaret Streets. The three memorial tablets containing the names of those who died during World War I were placed alphabetically commencing on the northern face and proceeded anti-clockwise to the western and southern faces of the memorial.
The design of the Mothers’ Memorial being on an octagonal base was a perfect platform for the inclusion of additional memorial panels. The panels containing the names of those who sacrificed their lives in World War 2 were manufactured so that they could fit below the curved lip of the remaining four octagonal faces of the memorial commencing at the north-eastern face and placed anti-clockwise ending at the south-eastern face of the memorial.
