Beenleigh War Memorial


Local war memorials hold a wealth of information that the National War Memorial's records cannot readily show: the impact WWI had on a community through enlistment, and death.

Beenleigh's war memorial was unveiled by Lieutenant Governor William Lennon on 21 November 1925. Its original location was at the road junction in the town centre.

This white sculpted slab, topped by the Australian Infantry Forces' 'Rising Sun' Badge provides a roll call, but look closely: it's not alphabetical. The slab, surrounded by a trough of water, bears the names of 61 soldiers, 10 are listed as killed ('K' stands beside their names); two died in service ('D' denotes their fate).

Nationally, Australia lost 60,000 from a population of about 4,000,000.

Buried where they fell (by decree of the British), Australia's outpouring of grief was demonstrated through a wave of memorials like this one.

A wall behind the slab carried plaques representing all the services and subsequent conflicts: WWII, Korea, Malaysia and Vietnam. The memorial was relocated to its present site in 1995.

Pimpama and Ormeau War Memorial


In church grounds at Pimpama, halfway between Brisbane and the Gold Coast, stands a stone memorial-a soldier statue, his head bowed, hands crossed and resting on his rifle, a tree trunk supporting him. It is, in fact, a replica of the original which was unveiled in 1919 following a public subscription.

The original stood in the cemetery of Pimpama Uniting (previously Methodist) Church, a tribute to the seven local men who had died in WWI. It was produced by AL Petrie and Son of Toowong, the largest masonry firm in Queensland at the time; responsible for many WWI memorials.

A series of relocations within the property have occurred, the most recent in 1993, when the replica was commissioned. This facsimile, positioned facing the Pacific Highway, was unveiled on ANZAC Day 1995.

The old digger, which was in poor condition, was relocated to Miles Historical Village.
