I have seen many war memorial but I must say this one is very unique in design being semi circle in design and granite. It has the names of Australian battles and the names of towns were our troops came from located at Hyde Park Corner well worth finding and remembering our forces how never returned to Australia.

This is a different style of memorial to remember those who lost their life serving for Australia. This memorial has the names of all the towns from where Australian service personnel came. The major problem is it is their birth town. I didn't know the person of my interest was born 50 kms from where he and his sibling grew... More

There's a cluster of things to see on this hidden roundabout on Hyde Park Corner. This memorial is well kept, clean and nicely presented. We looked at this with all the other monuments as a colleague and I went to walk and talk out of the office.

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.
