The Centenary Project is underway

4 October 2016

Work has begun  and hoardings now surround the construction site. Sixty odd graphic panels have been placed on the fencing to keep the community informed during construction and show some of the Memorial’s treasures spanning a century of NSW’s military service.

1945 — Lt A CHOWNE won a Victoria Cross for his gallantry at DAGUA, New Guinea, when he knocked out two Japanese machine-guns and paved the way for the 6th Division’s advance on WEWAK. The award was made posthumously.  Chowne had previously been awarded a Military Medal.
