War memorial in a country town
A war memorial in the centre of town features a soldier on a plinth, gallantly striding out. People stand around the memorial, some in uniform, while others look out from the balconies of nearby buildings. This work, which is referred to in Donald Friend's diaries, was painted by Friend for Major General Kaye in October 1943, who later gifted it to the Australian War Memorial.
