THE CANBERRA AND DISTRICTS' NATIONAL SERVICE MEMORIAL


Tuggeranong Town Park Bartlet Place Greenway



The Canberra and Districts National Service Memorial honours the men from Canberra and the surrounding districts, who were conscripted for compulsory service within Australia's armed forces. The first conscription occurred over the period 1911 1915. It was re introduced during the Second World War (over the period 1940 1945, with conscripts seeing operational service in the South¬West Pacific Zone); over the period 1951 1959 and again from 1965 1972 (with a number of these conscripts serving overseas in Malaysia or South Vietnam). The Memorial also acknowledges those members, of both the Australian regular and reserve armed forces, with whom the national servicemen served along side.

The Memorial is made from Yellowstone rock and bears a descriptive plaque.


The Memorial's Badge:

National Service and Combined Forces Association (ACT): A F1 Hornet fighter aircraft above a pair of crossed Lee Enfield .303 rifles; all backed by a stylized Admiralty anchor (representing the Royal Australian Air Force, the Australian Military Forces and the Royal Australian Navy respectively).
