Poppy Park

Penrith NSW constructed a poppy park to honour every Australian that made the ultimate sacrifice to defend our countr, by planting an artificial poppy for every life lost with the defence personell's name and date of death. My family purchased four poppies and Sydney was one of them. We will research Sydneys service and will speak his name often so his sacrifice will never be forgotten. Thankyou is not enough Sydney, RIP you are a hero xx
