Scone First World War Memorial Gateway
Scone First World War Memorial Gateway;
Alderman Edward John Sherwood, the Mayor of Scone who, in 1916, proposed the erection of a monument to the fallen men from the Scone district. said, “It must be something worthy of the sacrifices these brave men have made-something that will stand as a monument for our children’s children to point to, and recall the record of which this district is so proud.”
The building to which the World War One Memorial Gateway was attached was the Soldiers’ Memorial School of Arts which had been officially opened on March 27, 1924. On August 26, 1924 the Memorial described by the Editor of the Scone Advocate as a crowning addition to the building was unveiled by Lieutenant-Colonel Don Cameron DSO & Bar.
The memorial bore the names of 100 men from the Scone District who had died as the result of serving their Country. In April 2003 the Scone Sub-branch added four more name, in reality 138 men connected with the Scone District died while serving.
In recent years, the Upper Hunter Council wished to move the arch of the Memorial to the site of their new Council Chambers, a public outcry and unanimous no vote from RSL Sub-Branch members saw the Memorial remain in the place it was located by the WW1 veterans who erected it in Memory of their fallen mates.
