Description

The structure, which stands in the centre of the town, is built of heavily reinforced concrete and marble. There is a hexagonal pedestal, on the facings of which appear the names of scenes of the soldiers' service-Gallipoli, Egypt, Palestine, France, Rabaul, and the words: "Lest We Forget." Surmounting this is another hexagon, on which are placed six marble slabs, containing the names of the soldiers who enlisted from the Wallamba watershed. Above this is a reinforced concrete shaft 14ft. long, tapering to the apex, on which is placed a marble Celtic cross. On the sides of this shaft and reaching over portion of the cross are two beautiful unsheathed bronze swords, each 7ft long.
