Rhodes art work remembers local soldiers
A new art work by Olev Muska at McIlwaine Park commemorates the service of local soldiers during the First World War.
Olev (left) has drawn on images from the Local Studies photographic collection, Canada Bay Connections and the Australian War Memorial to create a fascinating work. Against the background photograph of the unveiling of the Rhodes Honour Roll in 1919 can be seen images of Walter Brooks, the Seabrook brothers and a Field Post Office card sent by Harry Jeffery to his mother before going into battle.
The art work ensures that those who served in the First World War are remembered as ‘More than just a name’.
