Mitchell Park Memorial Gates - Merewether

Description: 

The Memorial originally incorporated ornamental gates, which have been replaced by brickwork. The marble columns are faced with lead-lettered honour rolls (the lead from some sections has regrettably been removed).The memorial is located on Mitchell Street as an entrance to Mitchell Park. Robert Street is directly opposite the gates.

The left inner column is surmounted by the marble bust of a soldier, with a sailor's bust adorning the inner right column.

A cross is central to the complex, with the words 'Lest We Forget' immediately above. 1914 appears prominently on the base of the outer left column, with 1919 on the right column.

NOTE: The honour rolls are sequenced by enlistment years.
