Description

Pink Granite Obelisk flanked by stone walls with large brass plaques

Original description - The memorial, which stands directly opposite the railway station, is a handsome piece of work. Resting on a freestone base it is composed of trachyte and granite and the names of the soldiers are in gold lettering on two sides. On another side of the tablet is the inscription, "Erected in honor the citizens of Wallerawang who served the cause of freedom in the great war, 1914- 1918," and " The Path of Duty was the way to Glory." There is an iron railing around the monument, and on the cement bed numerous shells from Lord Howe Island have been placed. The contractor was Mr. R. J. Paterson, of Katoomba, and the memorial is a credit to him.
