The Cenotaph is a war memorial located in Martin Place, in front of the General Post Office (GPO), between George Street and Pitt Street. The word 'cenotaph' means empty tomb, a sepulchral monument in honour of a person whose body is elsewhere. It was unveiled on Anzac Day, 25th April 1929. The model for the soldier facing east was Private William Piggot Darby. The model for the sailor facing west was Leading Seaman John William Varco. The inscription on the south side reads "To Our Glorious Dead" and on the north side reads "Lest We Forget" which is a line from "Recessional", a Rudyard Kipling poem.
