The Australian in Spain Memorial Committee was established at the urging of Amirah Inglis, a Canberra academic who in the 1980s wrote the book Australians in the Spanish Civil War. The Committee lobbied Government for the establishment of a suitable memorial in Canberra to those Australians who had served in the war. Following fund-raising and a competition to design the memorial, it was unveiled in Lennox Gardens in Canberra on 11 December 1993.
