Our ANZAC’s

Prior to the establishment of the Pallamallawa War Memorial on 25 April 2015, Pallamallawa did not have a visible or external memorial that commemorated the service of the 68 residents who volunteered and the 8 residents who died in battle in the First World War. Now, these Pallamallawa Servicemen are recognised for their heroic acts on the granite memorial at the Pallamallawa War Memorial.

Should you wish to find our more information on these courageous soldiers, simply visit the Pallamallawa War Memorial, send through an enquiry or review the honour roll below. Here, we’re bringing soldier’s stories to life…

Note: You can find out even more about the soldiers as the associated link to the name directs to National archives.
