Alexander Eagleton Memorial Gates

Alexander Eagleton Memorial Gates

The Alexander Eagleton Memorial Gates consist of two wrought iron gates, supported by two white pillars. The words 'A.D. 1902' are displayed at the top of each pillar. A marble plaque in the shape of a shield bearing an inscription is attached to the front of each pillar.

The memorial has been relocated to the Clarence Town Memorial Park, where Anzac Day services take place.
