Timor Memorial project
[F]rom the Memorial to the top of the mountain was covered with colourful and teeming humanity… The greeting we received was spontaneous and magnificent.
We had returned home!
describing the opening of the Timor Memorial,
The Association decided to build a memorial in East Timor to honour the wartime assistance. A fundraising campaign raised $4,000 which was matched by the Federal Government.
The Association built a large resting place and wading pool at Dare, in the hills overlooking Dili for Timorese travelling to and from the city markets. It was opened in April 1969.
