Just a short stroll from home is this new war memorial. I am pleased to hear that City of Port Phillip is to spend some money on the maintenance of existing war memorials throughout the city. This one is in the City of Melbourne area though.
It is called Cobbers, in memory of those who fought and fell in the Battle of Fromelles, 19-20 July 1916. Cobber was a word my grandfather often used but you don't hear it too often now.
If you just happen to be at the Australian Memorial Park in Fromelles, France, you can see the first cast of this statue, which has been there since 1998. The sculptor was Peter Corlett.
