2020 marks 75 years since the end of the Second World War. To commemorate this important year, the NSW Government is interviewing WWII veterans about their experiences. Read our 75th Anniversary Stories.
This is a stained glass window measuring approximately 1600mm high by 1200mm wide. The window features the image of a soldier which has been intricately hand painted and kiln fired onto the glass. The soldier, dressed in First World War uniform and wearing webbing and pack, is standing in profile holding a Lee Enfield rifle with bayonet fixed. The word 'Bellingen' is inscribed above the soldier, and the word 'Memorial' is below.
The window is a main feature of the Bellingen Memorial Hall which was established in 1929 by First World War returned soldiers, originally as a picture theatre. The hall now functions as a multi-purpose facility for the Bellingen community.
