Description

The John Edmondsen VC Memorial clock was paid for by donations from all around the Commonwealth. The Clock commemorates the sacrifice of Corporal Edmondson who was awarded the first Victoria Cross of World War II.
The clock is mounted on a red granite base, inscribed with the names of the fallen from the Boer War, World War I and World War II.
It was originally located at the South end of Macquarie Street, but had been vandalised, and was no longer in a prominent position. In 1988 it was moved to its present location in the Liverpool City Library forecourt.
