This is the front view of the third feature on the 1-2 hour history walk “Famous Faces and Commemorative Places in Adelaide South Australia”
Starting at North Terrace this walk reveals the history behind some of the most valued statues and monuments that adorn Adelaide’s Park Lands.
National Soldiers Memorial – Great War – 1914
to 1918 by Woods, Bagot, Jory & Laybourne
Smith; and Rayner Hoff 1931
The State Government decided to build this memorial in 1919, but
it was not completed and unveiled untill Anzac Day, in 1931. The
design of the memorial was the subject of many arguments, and it
was eventually decided to seek expressions from the community
through the running of a competition. The winning design was dubbed the “spirit of sacrifice”. The main figure, the angel with the sword, represents the “spirit ofduty”, while the three bronze figures of a student, farmer and a
girl, represent the community.
