Restoring their names

march 2008 photos quarterly report 001 (Small)

In May last year the brass plaques commemorating servicemen and women at the Five Dock War Memorial were stolen.

The City of Canada Bay is working closely with the Five Dock RSL to ensure that new plaques are installed before the ANZAC Service in April. Ahead of the final plaques being produced the community is encouraged to notify Local Studies (using the comments link below) of any additions or changes. The plaques honor those who gave their lives in the First and Second World Wars and in Korea. This project complements Local Studies’ efforts to create a list of all those from the Canada Bay area who served during the First World War.

The Five Dock RSL has generously provided funds to ensure that the Five Dock War Memorial and surrounds are fully restored as a tribute to local men and women who have served their country.
