Description

The names of all 91 Diggers are etched on steel plaques affixed atop ten rocks, representing the cemeteries at Gallipoli where they are buried. The rocks are in a V continuum simulating the elevation of cemeteries that rise from the shores of Anzac Cove up to the highest peak at Lone Pine.

On the wall of the Sub Branch are two bookend quotes from Sir John Monash and Ataturk, providing an overarching conciliatory message of peace and friendship.

Inscription

SIR JOHN MONASH WROTE
“… I am almost frightened to contemplate the howl of
rage and disappointment there will be when the men
find out what is afoot [i.e. the Evacuation]. I am
wondering what Australia will think at the desertion of
her 6,000 dead ...”
Sir John Monash, 12 December 1915

ATATURK’S WORDS
Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives.
You are now living in the soil of a friendly country,
therefore rest in peace.
There is no difference between the Johnnies and the
Mehmets to us where they lie side by side, here in this
country of ours.
You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway
countries, wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying
in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their
lives on this land, they have become our sons as well.
Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, 1934
