Dedication

Front Inscription
IN HONOUR OF THE
MEN AND WOMEN
WHO SERVED AUSTRALIA
IN TIME OF CONFLICT

LEST WE FORGET
Inscription in Proximity
They shall not grow old . . .

They went with songs to the battle, they were young,
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted :
They fell with their faces to the foe.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old :
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
O.L.Binyon (from For the Fallen)
