Bambi Kindergarten Memorial Garden Print Page Print this page

The Bambi Kindergarten Memorial Garden was dedicated to commemorate those who were missing in action during the Korean War.

In 1997 a memorial plaque, for 22 soldiers reported "Missing in Action" during the Korean War (1950-1953), was unveiled by the honourable Bronwyn Bishop, the Minister for Defence, Industry, Science & Personnel at that time. The plaque honours the 22 soldiers whose bodies were never recovered and now remain in graves somewhere in the Korean battlefields.

The Korean War (25 June 1950 – 27 July 1953) was a war between the Republic of Korea (South Korea), supported by the United Nations, and the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (North Korea), at one time supported by the People's Republic of China and the Soviet Union. It was primarily the result of the political division of Korea by an agreement of the victorious Allies at the conclusion of the Pacific War at the end of World War Two. After the war ended, the presence of Australians in Korea continued with a peacekeeping force until 1956. Of the 340 Australians killed during the Korean War, 43 were classified as ‘missing in action’ (MIA) and presumed dead.
