Mosman, war memorial

The Mosman War Memorial is located on the corner Myahgah Road and The Crescent at Mosman. The original World War 1 memorial is a large grey stone obelisk, dedicated in 1922. A flagpole, a small stone to commemorate World War 2 and a memorial sundial were added to commemorate subsequent conflicts. This memorial sits on the edge of Allan Border Oval, surrounded by six cypress trees.
