Governor General Sir Willoughby Norrie meets local Returned Servicemen at the dedication of Fitzroy Memorial Park. From about 1951 the eastern end of Fitzroy Park was developed as a memorial to those who died in World War Two, and a war memorial was unveiled 19 October 1952. At the 1954 dedication of the whole park, a plaque on the Memorial Entrance was also unveiled.
