Inscription

Lest We Forget To Our Glorious Dead Sawtell Memorial Park We mourn them here Our dreaming dead In this quiet hallowed place As once they loved all this- Warm sands - Sea breeze Tall trees and distant hills The magpies glory in the early morn- We chose this spot. We took our memories and placed them here. And planted trees, like memories, evergreen To thrive and grow More cherished than the years. Speak quietly here - tread soft The men who loved these sands dream on The blessed peace for which they fought is theirs In this tree-ringed, green, lovely spot. N.A. SAWTELL R.S.L.
