The Memorial

"The Memorial was built in 1919 to honour the Workshops employers who served in World War 1. More than 300 men from the Workshops enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force (AIF) - 31 did not return. After the war, The Workshops employees raised 1,400 Pounds ($2,800) to build the Memorial.
The Memorial was designed by Queensland Railways architect, Vincent Price. Andrew Petrie of Brisbane made the base and column. London sculptors, John Whitehead and Sons, sculptured the soldier figure. The ornate bronze plates were made by Charles Handford of Brisbane. These feature the Queensland Railways badge and coat of arms."
