The Berriwillock War Memorial in the Mallee region of north-west Victoria consists of a pink granite WWI era soldier held above a granite plinth by four columns.

This monument was opened on the 6th of May, 1920, by Lieutenant Colonel Williams, to commemorate the sacrifice made by members of the local community in WWI.

Plaques were later added to honour those who served in WW2, the Korean War and the Vietnam War. Although now faded, the WWI honour roll located on the base of the monument features the outline of Australia behind the names of 15 servicemen who died in service or were killed in action during the Great War.

This list includes Private George Parnaby of the 24th Infantry Battalion who was killed in action at Gallipoli on the 14th September 1915 and Corporal William Fraser McKerrow of the 4th Light Horse Regiment who died in Palestine on the 4th May 1918
