Carlton, war memorial

The Kogarah war memorial is located beside Jubilee Oval in the southern suburb of Carlton. It was established in 1919 and dedicated to the Naval and Army Corps involved in World War 1. It was originally located on Gray Street at nearby Kogarah but was moved to this reserve to accomodate a wider road there. Tomorrow is Anzac Day, which is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, commemorating those who served and died for their countries.

  4. I know people don't remember WW1 much during the year, but on ANZAC Day, I am glad we have peaceful garden sites for our war memorials.

  10. As long there are wars there will be memorials. By the look of it there is no end to it. Besides a nice memorial is the least we can provide. My father hated the military and its indoctrination; he would be 107 years old.
    Your photo looks peaceful.

  12. Susie, there is a war memorial in almost every suburb in Sydney, especially in the older areas. Sadly, there have been a lot of Australian lives lost in wars and every suburban community wanted to remember their lost loved ones.

  13. Miguel Martinez, on Anzac Day we say 'Lest we Forget' or in other words 'so that we should not forget'.
