MARCH OF THE DUNGAREES 25th NOV. 1915
The original patriotic march started with 28 marchers
from Warwick on 16th November 1915.
They made their way through Allora, Toowoomba,
Gatton, Rosewood and on to Ipswich.
On arrival in Brisbane their numbers had swelled to
125 and they were greeted by some 30,000 people.
This monument is a memorial to those original
Dungarees and to the Re-enactment that passed
this way on 21st April 1998.
"The war was fought and the war was won
And the Dungarees did their best
They returned to the country of their birth
All heroes with the rest"
