The Military Memorials of National Significance Act 2008 (the Act) provides for memorials that are not located in the Australian Capital Territory and meet the ten criteria in the Act, to be declared a Military Memorial of National Significance.
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission (CWGC) keeps complete records in its Debt of Honour Register of the official commemorations to the 1 700,000 members of the Commonwealth forces, including Australians, who died during the world wars. It also details 67,000 Commonwealth civilians who died due to enemy action in WW2.
War memorials fulfil our need to recognise, remember and learn about the profound losses and achievements of war
