Bundaberg Regional Council's Streets of Remembrance program commemorates the bravery and sacrifice of local servicemen who fought and died in wartime.

As part of this program, Jones Street was adorned with an Australian Army badge in honour of Private Noel Jones.

Born in Mount Perry, Noel Jones was a resident of East Bundaberg before he enlisted.

He served valiantly with the 2/25th Australian Infantry Battalion during the Second World War.

Tragically, he succumbed to illness in New Guinea on January 8, 1944.

Prior to his military service, Noel Jones worked as a labourer.

His dedication and bravery are commemorated through several military honours, including:

  • 1939/45 Star
  • Pacific Star
  • War Medal
  • Australian Service Medal
  • Memorial Scroll

Private Noel Jones's name is inscribed on the Roll of Honour at the Australian War Memorial, ensuring his sacrifice is remembered by future generations.

His final resting place is at the Lae War Cemetery in Morobe Province, Papua New Guinea.

The Streets of Remembrance program not only honours the fallen but also serves as a poignant reminder of the community's contributions to Australia's wartime efforts.
