ABOUT THIS IMAGE
Photographed at Geraldton, Western Australia.

In November 1941, the HMAS Sydney was lost off the coast of Geraldton whilst engaging the
German Raider ‘Kormoran’. The memorial precinct is located at Mount Scott, Geraldton.

The interior concave side of the Wall of Remembrance, situated at the memorial, bears the
names of all 645 men who lost their lives. The centre-piece is a dome surmounted by seven
pillars, representing the seven states and territories of Australia, it is made up of silver gulls
that form a filigree canopy. The Stele is made of stainless steel and represents the bow of
the HMAS Sydney.

A bronze figure of a woman also stands at the memorial. She is holding her hat against the
sea breeze, her skirt is blown back by the prevailing winds. She is anxious and tense, her
gaze forever fixed patiently on the horizon. She is eternal, the figure of a waiting woman,
grieving for her lost loved one.
