Its not until you get up really close to the Australian war memorial at Hyde park corner that you can appreciate the clever use of what looks likes marble with thousands of place names etched on to it. I would presume that these are a mixture of townships in Australia,and the names of the theatres of battle,although there did seem... More

As our ANZAC Day was approaching it was important for us to locate the Australian War Memorial in Hyde Park Corner just a few steps away from Wellington Arch. The memorial was opened in 2003 on the 85th anniversary of Armistice Day(11th of November) by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with our prime minister of the time in attendance. The... More

As memorials go, the Australian memorial in Hyde Park Corner is very unusual. Low, curved and with no obvious giveaways it takes a closer examination to reveal all the details contained on the wall. Standing a little back you can make out the place names of various battles, closer in you find the names of Australian settlements. It is a... More

I am not usually impressed by statues or monuments but this was so simple and striking it did hit a nerve

A few years ago, I was asked by the editor of an online 'stone trade' journal if I had any photographs of the newly built Australian War Memorial but I wasn't able to help him out on this occasion. During a recent trip to London, I took the time to take a better look at the area around Hyde Park... More

Low slung at the rear of the Wellington Arch site opposite Apsley House. Shows Australian participation in wars and battles since WWI. Shown behind an eerie graphic of each major graphic are the names of towns where Australian servicemen were from. Memorable.

This modern war memorial to the Australians who lost their lives in the two world wars is a must see if you are in London and it is easily missed. It is a curved wall of granite slabs and when you get close you can see they are inscribed with the names of almost 24,000 towns that were the birthplaces... More

The Australian government has erected a very unique war memorial at Hyde Park corner, at the western end of Constitution Hill. It is easily missed if visitors don't know it is there. Take the tube to Hyde Park Corner and cross over to Wellington Arch and the western corner of Green Park. We saw it on our way back from... More

Located in Hyde Park Corner, the Australian war memorial is dedicated to the 102000 Australians who died in WW1 and WW2. The memorial is a semicircular curved wall of grey-green Western Australian granite with the names of 47 battles in which Australia were involved in and the names of the 23,844 towns from which the soldiers were born. Its a... More
