This plaque was presented by the Newcastle

on the occasion of an Ecumenical Service held 
in the Christ Church Cathedral to commemorate the 
50th anniversary of the end of World War II 
           on 15 August 1945.

those citizens of the Newcastle and Hunter Region 
who served their country during World War II 
(1939 - 1945), as members of the Defence Forces 
and in various civilian roles, and also those
who have lost loved ones as a result of that conflict.
