ANZAC Day - Two of Five


The ANZAC Shrine, which is 10 metres in diameter and consists of a Grecian Doric circular colonnade of 18 columns representing the year of peace, 1918.

Written around the top coping are the names of the battles in which Australian units figured prominently - ANZAC, Cocos Islands, Romani, Jerusalem, Damascus, Pozieres, Bullecourt, Messines, Ypres, Amiens, Villers-Bretonneaux, Mont St Quentin, Hindenburg Line.

In the centre is the Eternal Flame of Remembrance, set in a bronze urn with the word Remembrance repeated around the bottom.
