Description

Description from the Daily Telegraph 1st Sept., 1922. Mitchell Collection, State Library of NSW.

'The foundation contains 1400 cubic feet of concrete, and the steps are of Bowral trachyte. The lamp bases are of polished red granite, and the nameplate is of axed and polished grey granite, supporting the super-structure, which is also of axed and polished granite, with polished trachyte panels, bearing the inscriptions and names of the fallen, engraved and finished in gold.

A heavily wrought cornice supports an emblematical device of the shield and palms of victory in electro bronze. The whole is finished with a massive polished grey granite column supporting the Orb of the Empire, embellished with bronze mountings and Victoria Cross. The movement for the memorial was initiated by Ald. T. H. Hicks, on his election as Mayor in January, 1920, and the foundation-stone was laid by him on December 4, 1920.

The memorial was designed by Mr. W. Martin, architect, of Glebe, and the work carried out by Mr. A. Goode, A.I.F., sculptor, of Sydney. Alderman R. S. King acted as hon. secretary to the movement, and Alderman F. J. Chipman was hon. treasurer.'
