Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery MemorialPrint Page
Gunners of all ranks, who have given their lives in the service of Australia are commemorated with this memorial. The outer wall is symbolic of the forts that in the past defended many Australian ports. Inside this wall are eight panels listing the conflicts in which Australian gunners have played a part.
These are flanked by other panels bearing one of the regiment’s motto Ubique (Everywhere) and its battle honour.
Memorial consists of a parapet inset with concrete panels on which are inscribed campaigns in which the Royal Regiment of Australian Artillery took part and an obelisk flanked by two cannons which were originally part of the Sydney Harbour defences.
Gun salutes are still fired from the memorial on appropriate occasions.
