Rochester Show 2015 backs Centenary WWI

Posted on February 27, 2015 at 9:43 PM
An enthusiatic committee of the Victorian Agricultural Show at Rochester, this year featured the ANZAC Centenary.


New classes in both cookery and art sections were introduced, each with a variety of age-related sections.


And all of us here at Service Medals Melbourne and Recherché of Northcote are very excited to congratulate Annette Waters on her variety of wins at the show this year.


Annette is one of 80 students leaving for Turkey on 20th April! 


We met Annette, and her mother and father, when they came to obtain replica medals awarded to her great grandfather Private Norman McKenzies Rolls who served with the AIF 5th Battalion


Annette is pictured with Frame-maker & Medal-mounter Neville Crawford- Photo Credit Claire Waters

But perhaps it is better to let her heartfelt "Spirit of the ANZAC Entry" tell the story -


SHOW SECTION was - "Spirit of the Anzac" - A small write up and picture about the ANZAC landing, or about a specific soldier." (Under 18 years). Annette's artwork won first prize, plus a blue ribbon sash for best art exhibit (under 18 years)



Annette recorded the following information on the back of the canvas:

COMMEMORATING THE ANZAC CENTENARY 2015

A Tribute to my Great-Grandpa - Norman McKenzie Rolls


Mixed media
Acrylic on canvas; sprayed with metallic ink and glimmer mist


Featuring
  • A portrait of my Great-Grandpa wearing his Australian Imperial Force uniform. This photograph was taken during the First World War - circa 1915. Digital scan; laser print coloured with Copic markers.

  • AIF First World War Nominal Roll - Page 89 shows my Great-Grandpa’s details (also for his brother - Josiah Rolls - who later lost his life at the Western Front, and is buried in Belgium). Source: Australian War Memorial.


Embellished with
Replica “Rising Sun” and “AIF Returned from Active Service” badges
“Australia” shoulder title
medal ribbon bar
cork, sea grass cord, jute, chipboard, vellum, silk webbing, canvas, copper, ribbon, beads


(By Annette Waters - February 2015)


And here's the "Blue Ribbon" version -


It will be on display whenever she has a speaking engagement after she returns home from Gallipoli. Meanwhile, it will be finding a very special place on the wall at home!

Congratulations once again Annette.

We look forward to hearing more about this incredibly exciting tour soon to take place.


PS  In the hotly contested section  "Anzac biscuits -four" (Boys or Girls 14-18 years), Annette won second prize! Congratulations once again!

And our especial thanks go to Claire Waters for the fantastic photographs and the very informative and warm correspondence we are now having!  Lovely to feel a part of your story. Thank you so much Claire and Gavan and Annette.
