Mounted Memorial

The Mounted Memorial, by Raymond Ewers, shows two Australian Army horse riders. They are wearing the typical uniform of World War I. One of the horses has been injured or shot, and the rider is falling to the ground; the other rider is supporting his companion. The sculpture is a copy of one that was erected at Port Said in1932. This was damaged beyond repair during the Suez Crisis in 1956. The remnants were taken to Australia and a replica was constructed.  Two castings in bronze were made, the first of which was erected in Albany (West Australia) in 1964, and the other one in Canberra in 1968.
