Description

Each tree originally bore a brass plaque stating the name of one of the 93 local men. Only one of these plaques survives, now on a cairn which was dedicated by the Roma RSL sub-branch on Remembrance Day, 1983. The cairn is located outside the Post Office near the corner of McDowell and Wyndham Streets.

A tree commemorating Lance Corporal Norman Saunders, who was killed in France in 1916 during World War One was the first of the 93 bottle trees planted and is at the site of the cairn.
