Many members would be aware of the New Memorial to the Boer War which has just been constructed in Anzac Parade Canberra. The centre piece is four mounted troopers 150% life size in bronze.
During November the genius of the sculptor will be on display in the 3rd floor Bar area This is the creation of the first mounted trooper in bronze by the sculptor Louis Laumen, which was copied to produce the full size National Memorial model. Brochures available have a photo of the Canberra memorial and a historical summary of the Boer War; Australia’s first war.
