MEMORIAL PARKS

Sometimes when taking an unexpected turn around a corner, or going down a path not walked before, a quiet spot of contemplation near a war memorial will be revealed.

It was just one Saturday in the wintry sunshine that I happened upon such a monument which had been erected by the Mitcham RSL.



Beyond this imposing memorial with its lists of names, of those who fell and of those who returned, children could be observed playing in the distance, families wheeling prams, dogs held on leads - all experiencing the freedom sought for and won by those who went to war on behalf of their country.








The memorials listed on the following link are specific to the conflicts of WWl  http://monumentaustralia.org.au/themes/conflict/ww1
