Rose Bay, war memorial

This magnificent ornate gate in Lyne Park leads to the Rose Bay war memorial, in the eastern suburb of Rose Bay. The war memorial was dedicated on 21st April 1935 but commemorates World War 1, World War 2, the Korean War and Vietnam War. The gate came from an old mansion called Colebrook, which was located in a nearby suburb called Double Bay.

  1. It's as if the trees are shielding the war memorial, the gates standing guard. Lest we forget...

  2. This is a treasure, Jim. I have passed by it many times but never stopped to contemplate. Those gates are just terrific. I am glad they have been recycled.

    I don't think we in Australia will ever forget, even the youngsters. One only has to watch the crowds on ANZAC Day to realise that.
