What better way to honour our Pally servicemen than by constructing a dedicated War Memorial.
In 2013, The Pallamallawa War Memorial Committee commenced seeking community, government and council approval for the construction of a visible and external war memorial. After gaining approval and funds from various fundraising initiatives and government sponsorship, construction commenced in 2014 with the War Memorial opening taking place on 25 April 2015 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the landings at Gallipoli.
This will not be the only time the memorial will be used for 100th anniversaries as it will be a focal point for our town’s remembrance for all 8 Pally servicemen who lost their lives during the Great War. The newly developed granite memorial is a unique tribute, listing the conflicts that people from Pallamallawa have been involved in, including: Boer War, First World War, Second World War and Vietnam. It is a historic investment for Pallamallawa and the Moree District at large, being a reminder of our heroic heritage, an outlet for veteran grief, an educational journey through history and tourist attraction that will stand the lengths of time.
‘Lest We Forget’ our heroic Pallamallawa Servicemen.
