Redfern War Memorial
Two white marble figures (Australian soldier and a young woman) dress a granite monument which is faced with a dedicatory plaque and a list of local men who gave their lives.
The memorial also featured a tall column up until 1975 when a storm caused considerable damage, resulting in the subsequent repositioning of principal elements - SEE 'Additional Images with accompanying information:' link, below.
'This memorial was erected by the citizens of Redfern to the honour and glory of the men of this district who gave their lives for God and King in the cause of humanity in the Great War 1914 - 1919'
'THESE BRAVE MEN HEARD THE NATION'S CALL
THEY NOBLY FOUGHT. DEATH NOBLY MET.
THEY GAVE THEMSELVES, THEIR LIFE, THEIR ALL,
WHILE LIFE SHALL LAST WE'LL NE'ER FORGET.' D.F.B.
'This foundation stone was laid by the Mayor of Redfern
Alderman A. C. Isaacs, J. P.
2nd November 1919'
