The Arch Of Remembrance | Australia


Postcard
The Arch Of Remembrance commemorates Australian servicemen and women who have served in all wars and conflicts. The arch was originally constructed in 1926 to remember the 114 people (of whom 22 died) from the Brighton area who served in WWI, the ‘war to end all wars’.

As we all sadly know, WWI didn’t end all wars and two additional bronze laurel wreaths were added to the front of the Arch following WWII with later additions on either side to remember those who served in or died in Malaya, Korea, Borneo, Vietnam, Malaysia, Gulf War, East Timor, Afghanistan and Gulf War II (2003-2011).
