 Adelaide River War Territory, Adelaide River, Northern Territory, Australia


Tree:  

Latitude: -13.2312508, Longitude: 131.11445709999998

Notes:
During the Second World War, Adelaide River was the headquarters of a large base, and the war cemetery was created especially for the burial of servicemen who died in this part of Australia. It was used by Australian General Hospitals Nos. 101, 107, 119, 121 and 129, and after the war the Army Graves Service moved other graves into it from isolated sites, temporary military burial grounds and various civil cemeteries in the area.

ADELAIDE RIVER WAR CEMETERY now contains 434 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.

Within Adelaide River War Cemetery will be found the NORTHERN TERRITORY MEMORIAL, which commemorates members of the Australian Army, the Royal Australian Air Force, the Australian Merchant Navy and the Services Reconnaissance Department who lost their lives in operations in the Timor and Northern Australian regions and in waters adjacent to Australia north of Latitude 20 degrees south, and who have no known grave.
