Adelaide south Australia

MY favourite statues in my city are both war memorials. Perhaps the worst is the statue of Queen Victoria, in Victoria Square, naturally

The cavalryman is from the Boer War

The other was made for WW1. Here in Adelaide, 35000 men volunteered ; 37.7% of the male population .. We lost 5511 killed, 1500 wounded. .Australia did not have conscription for WW 1
