On Sunday 25th November, the names of 12 WW1 Airmen were honoured with a service and dedication of the addition of their names to the South Australian National War Memorial Roll of Honour.
His Royal Highness, The Prince Andrew, Duke of York, KG officially opened the Memorial following the service, which was also attended by His Excellency the Honourable Hieu Van Le AC and the Honourable Steven Marshall MP Premier of South Australia. Descendants of the honoured Airmen as well as a number of World War 2 veterans were also in attendance.
