To coincide with Remembrance Day, the second stage of the Cobar Memorial Services Club’s commemorative wall was unveiled on Friday evening.
The new section of the wall focuses on World War II and some of the Cobar residents who served in this conflict.
Cobar Memorial Services Club’s secretary/manager Linda Carter told The Cobar Weekly that many local families will find relatives represented on the wall including the Manns, Higgins, Prendergast, Cooney, Betts, Bunyan, Muldoon, Moore, Miles, Ross, Holland, Dwyer, Padula, Cross, Dowling, Delaney, Barklimore, Rankin and Wiggins families.
As well as information on local residents who served in World War II, the wall also features photographs of Cobar as it was during the late 1930s and early 1940s.
Mrs Carter said Heath Budd from Cobar Signs was commissioned to create the second stage of the commemorative wall.
The new section is larger and looks a bit different to the first stage which commemorates World War I and was made in Queensland.
“We hope that it will work out to be a bit of an eye catcher as people drive over the hill just as the first stage did,” Mrs Carter said.
Mr Budd erected the sign in the dark on Thursday night and it was kept covered up until its official unveiling on Friday evening.
