Soldiers' Memorial Gardens

1939-1945 World War II Honour Roll by Walter Pretty and David Jarvis.

The world conflict of Nineteen Thirty-Nine

Follow’d the Treaty of Nineteen Nineteen,

The economics of Nineteen Twenty-Nine

Established with stress, the in-between:

The arms overlaid the ideologies

Defin’d by separate national policies.

Soldiers’ Memorial Gardens
1939-1945 World War II Honour Roll by Walter Pretty and David Jarvis 2022.

The men and women of Goolwa heard the call,

In pride, they wore their uniforms early,

On battlefield, on land, in sky, at sea;

In willingness and duty they gave their all.

Six men were listed for Supreme Sacrifice,

For Valour on the Township Honour Roll

To rest in quiet time and place, the soul

In its Valhalla and Paradise.

They show’d the way in courage, they went before;

Their names, preserv’d, liveth for ever more.

Poem written by WAP 31 Oct 2009, video by DAJ 25 Apr 2022.
