Description / Background

The memorial is a single stained glass window, divided into two sections. The top section depicts a soldier overlooking Anzac Cove, Gallipoli. In the bottom section are two Australian flags, positioned over the Seven Point Star. Both sections are framed by stylised images of wattle. The dedication is at the bottom of the window, flanked by two red poppies.

The window was made by Australian stained glass artist Bill Klease. In an interview with ABC North Coast NSW (27 April 2015) he said:

I wanted to create a representation of the various monuments you'll see in towns across Australia where there's usually a cast bronze soldier standing up on a pillar of some sort.

Underneath I've got images of wattle and the idea being the ANZAC story has morphed into a story about forming of Australia's personality.

The window was funded by a grant received in 2014 as part of the Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program. It was completed early in 2015 and covered until its dedication at a commemorative service on 24 April.

The memorial is located in the Warrior's Chapel inside St Andrew's Anglican Church at Lismore. Access to the memorial is by appointment/tour.
