Memorial project takes the next step

March 14, 2018

Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson welcomed the Tamworth RSL Sub Branch Senior Vice President Sandra Lambkin to a very special event in the NSW Parliament this week.

The event was hosted by NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian and Veteran Affairs Minister David Elliott and was to announce the 100 significant sites where soil samples have been collected for a special artwork, as part of the Centenary of Anzac commemorations.

"The 100 international sites across 31 countries and jurisdictions have been carefully chosen to represent the State's involvement in Australia's international military history," Mr. Anderson said. "As part of the State's representation, a number of soil samples were taken from local memorials in the Tamworth Electorate.

Mrs. Lambkin who is also a State Councilor for RSL NSW said; "I think it's very special that we recognise where world war one soldiers came from, Tamworth had a wonderful record of providing servicemen in all wars especially in world war one. We are know for punching above our weight."
