  Korean memorial on Anzac Parade
by balhannah

Located at no 3 on my walk on Anzac parade, this memorial commemorates the 339 Australians who died and honours those who served in the Korean War from 1950 - 1953.

A boulder from a Korean battefield is a commemorative focal point, and an obelisk commemorates those who died with no known grave. Conifers planted on either side of the memorial are evidently identifiable to the veterans who served in Korea.

The Poles on either side symbolise those Australians who died, with the three figures representing the Australian Sailors, Soldiers and Airmen who served in Korea. The matereials used are meant to represent the harsh climate and terrain in which the Korean war was fought in.
