Emu Park Memorial CenotaphPrint Page
Emu Park Memorial Cenotaph commemorates Australian servicemen and women who have served in all wars and conflicts.
The white painted obelisk cenotaph was originally unveiled in 1922 and displays Rolls of Honour to Emu Park Soldiers who took part in the First World War. The memorial was presented by J N Lawson to the Ladies Emu Park Improvement Association and erected by them. Additional memorial walls and plaques commemorating subsequent conflicts have been erected and now form a memorial place.
The Emu Park Cenotaph was unveiled by Mr G.S. Curtis on Anzac Day 1922. At the unveiling ceremony Mr Curtis recited the words of Tennyson's poem :-
"Britons myriad voices call
Sons be welded each and all
Into one Imperial whole,
One with Britain heart and soul;
One life, one flag, one fleet , one throne."
