Overview

The Percy Beaglehole Memorial Gate was erected in Moonta in 1936 in honour of Percy Beaglehole, twenty years after he was killed in action in France during the First World War. The Memorial is made of white marble and is located at the entrance of Nankivell Park and the Norman McAuley Senior Citizen Homes at the corner of Blanche Terrace and Military Road. Private Percy Beaglehole, who was 25 years old at the time of his death, bequeathed in his will money earned from dividends that were paid from mining shares. The money was for incapacitated returned servicemen to Moonta who found themselves unable to earn their own living.
