RADAR

On 7 November 1941 the RAAF was given responsibility for all ground-based early warning radar operations.

This memorial is in commemoration of all the RAAF and WAAAF personnel who served in ground and airborne  radar operations in the South-West Pacific Area during the Second World War.

They operated in the utmost secrecy and their contribution to victory was invaluable.
