Adelaide’s war memorial walk.

June 22, 2017

Dismay has been expressed in some quarters about my aversion (and opposition) to the idea of transporting the unique  World War One monument  near  the junction of West and  South Terrace to the memorial walk on Kintore Avenue, alongside Government House.

To be quite clear, I admire the walk in general..

What I DO object to most strongly is a proposal to add to that tribute by the transfer (and transformation/vandalisation)  of the Dardanelles obelisk/cross, a First World War “first” erected on Sir Lewis Cohen Avenue in mid-1915 by public subscription.

The matter will be the subject of discussion at  Monday evening’s Unley Council meeting.

HISTORY (LIKE THE SACRIFICE MADE BY VOLUNTEERS FROM THE CITIES OF ADELAIDE AND UNLEY) SHOULD BE INVIOLATE.
