Two Wells Afghanistan War Memorial

Details

Location Old Port Wakefield Road, Two Wells, Mallala - South Australia, Australia
Type memorial
Description

The garden honours the 41 Australian soldiers killed in action during the war in Afghanistan.

The memorial is a constructed paved area at the back of the memorial site, allowing for wheelchair and pram access, with each marble memorial stone listing the name of the soldier, their service number, and having a small rising sun emblem etched into it. A larger rising sun emblem is attached to the arch along the back stone wall of the site and roses are set to be planted between the memorial stones.

As an initiative of the Two Wells RSL, families and individuals have been given the opportunity to be involved in the project by purchasing a memorial stone in honour of a soldier killed in action. The soldier belongs to that family, and the family will be encouraged to come along to each ANZAC Day and Remembrance Day service, to bring their children and grandchildren along, and hopefully the soldier’s memory will be passed down through the generations and they will grow up knowing this is their soldier.

Black granite with red rising sun emblem flanked by iron soldier cutouts and name plaques
