Posted on 2 May 2019

The National Servicemen's Memorial is a monument, that commemorates those who undertook National Service in the Australian Defence Forces from 1951 to 1972.

Between 1951 an 1972, young Australian men were called up in two separate schemes for compulsory training in the Navy, Army and Air Force. From these men, 212 died on active service in Borneo and Vietnam. 

National Service was part of Australia's Defence preparedness for three decades.
