Petersham Park ANZAC GatesPrint Page Print this page

Petersham Park ANZAC Gates were erected in memory of the men from Petersham who fought in World War One. 

Tomorrow afternoon the Governor (Sir Walter Davidson) will be present at two functions in Petersham-the opening of Anzac Gates in Petersham Park, and the unveiling of a trophy gun in Petersham Town Hall. The gates are in memory of the men who left Petersham and fought in the war; the gun was captured from the German army during the attack on the Hindenburg outpost line on September 8, 1918.
