War Memorials and Honour Rolls in the State of Western Australia
Would you like to see the War Memorial from your local area, represented on this website. Please forward us a photograph so that the service of these men and women is not forgotten.
Albany in Western Australia is popularly regarded as the birthplace of the Anzac Day Dawn Service. A padre who served with the 44th Infantry Battalion (Reverand WHITE) held a requiem service for the war dead at Mount Clarence in 1918; as this is reportedly the last piece of 'Australia' which was in view to the first diggers, as they sailed off to Egypt for training (prior to the Gallipoli landings). As such, this town has significant ties with the Anzac legend and is worthy of it's place in Australian Military History.
The War Memorial at Denmark covers all conflicts from which men of the district have served. From the Great War of 1914-1918 through to World War 2, Malayan Emergency, Korea and Vietnam. It has recently undergone a restoration project and now has display on display, an "Eternal Flame" as a continual reminder of the sacrifice made by the people of Denmark (Western Australia). The town of Denmark has as it's tourism catch phrase "Where The Forest Meets The Sea" and is a picturesque setting on the coast of Western Australia. The local Historical Society has published a book in conjunction with the R.S.L. (Returned Serviceman's League) titled "WE WILL REMEMBER THEM" which lists all of those, mentioned on the war memorial. It also supplies some biographical information and photographic images of these servicemen. However there are six men whose images have not been obtained at this stage. If your ancestor enlisted from Denmark in Western Australia - and you have a photograph of this person, could you please contact the Medals Gone Missing Administrator who will put you in contact with the appropriate person.
