Lest We Forget


Most of the memorials were built soon after World War I. With Kandos being a very young town at the time I wasn't sure what I would find.  I thought the next most likely spot was at the Community Centre and Library complex ... a cement building (of course) built in 1954 according to its foundation stone.  My guess was right, the driveway is flanked by two columns with the words Lest We Forget .. very simple by the standards of most towns.  What surprised me however was the actual memorial to the left of this ... it was erected in 2010!

  1. That gives me the impression that Kandos could be a growing town.

  2. Amazing find. In Wagga Wagga the memorial uses the dates 1914-1919. So true for Australians who had one of the longest journeys home after Armistice

  3. This and the previous post are interesting commentaries on what we found to be important in days gone by.
