At the heart of the Memorial building is the Roll of Honour: a long series of bronze panels recording the names of over 102,000 members of the Australian armed forces who have died during or as a result of warlike service, non-warlike service and certain peacetime operations. Also found in the Commemorative Area is the leather-bound Commemorative Roll, which commemorates Australians who died during or as a result of their service in same conflicts or operations in service of Allied nations, the Merchant Navy, and with civilian organisations.
The Memorial takes very seriously its responsibility in managing the Roll of Honour and Commemorative Roll and ensuring they record the sacrifice made by Australians in war and on military operations. The accuracy of the data contained in the Honour Rolls is important to us, and we invite you to contact us in respect to potential amendments or additions to the Honour Rolls. Find out more
