This remembrance service is in memory of the Victorian servicemen and women who served overseas in World War I, either in units of the Australian Military Forces or in ships of the Royal Australian Navy. Their names are recorded forever in the books displayed in the ambulatory of this Shrine of Remembrance. They served in the Middle East, on the Gallipoli peninsula, in France and on the oceans of the world.
89,000 Victorians served overseas.
19,000 made the supreme sacrifice.
