Gallery - Richmond Legion's Front Garden

Fallen... Not Forgotten
The centre piece of the garden in front of the legion hall is the granite cross and accompanying engraved tablet. The engraved words “Fallen Not Forgotten” represents not just the fallen veterans that are honoured and remembered by legions world wide, but for the Richmond Legion it also invokes memories of the original monument at their cenotaph, which was destroyed by a micro-burst in 1998.

The cenotaph itself is located in the Richmond Memorial Park at the corner of Perth & McBean St, across from the Richmond Bakery. The monument at the cenotaph was rebuilt and the top of the damaged monument was taken to the legion hall and used to form the front of the garden wall. Both the cross and the engraving are readily visible from the street and is a visible reminder of our fallen.
