Red Cross Flagpole

Donated in the 1940's by the Australian Red Cross society, Whitfield Branch, and erected in a circualr garden at the entry to South Wing, now the Memorial Rose Garden.

Due to the passage of time and weather, it was removed and renovated in 2009.   Placed on this wall in November after unveiling by Max Beaumont and Jean Parry, both foundation members of the 2/7th AGH Association, together with the Hon. Alan Griffin MP, Minister for Veterans` Affairs on 22 May 2009.

In memory of all who served with the 2/7th Australian General Hospital, and all doctors, nurses and other staff who have cared for veterans and war widows in this hospital.  The care continues

Generous donations from 2/7th AGH Association  Mr Michael J Wilson, ENT specialist April 2010
