The National War Memorial Southern Command is a war memorial in Pune Cantonment, India, dedicated to post-Independence war martyrs. This is the only war memorial in South Asia which has been erected by citizens' contributions.
The memorial was unveiled and dedicated to the nation on August 15, 1998. A Mig 23 BN, used in the Kargil War, is on display at the memorial.
A replica of the now decommissioned frigate INS Trishul, which served in the Liberation of Goa and the Indo-Pakistani War of 1971, is also on display.
