Berger MemorialPrint Page Print this page

The monument commemorates the employees from the Berger Paint Company who served in the various conflicts in which Australia has been involved. 

Originally located at Berger Paint company in Rhodes, the memorial is made up of two parts - a large stone seat next to a stone monument with three levels, a sun dial on the top and several metal plaques around the monument. There is one plaque missing. Each plaque has twelve names of men or women who served.

When the site was being bulldozed, the Concord Heritage Society asked that the memorials be preserved and City of Canada Bay Council had them removed and placed in the vicinity of Concord`s war memorial with a special ceremony in 2000.  The monument has since been relocated from Concord back to Rhodes.
