Description

The monument which was designed by Mr H.W. Mobsby, is constructed of white Carrara marble and granite. A moulded granite cap bearing a lamp surmounts the column, the front panel of the latter bearing 25 names of residents of No. 1 Ward of Taringa Shire who gave their lives for their country. Below the honour roll is verse from Laurence Binyon's poem, "For the Fallen."

It was originally located at the intersection of Station and Westminster Roads. On 14 March 1972, Brisbane City Council decided on a new and safer site for the memorial - an area of land bounded by Coonan Street, Belgrave Road, and Underhill Avenue.

They shall not grow old, As we that are left grow old;
Age shall not wear them, Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, And in the morning
