PARK FOR ANNANDALE.
In 1923, a large number of Annandale residents met at the Council Chambers on Johnston Street. The Mayor (Alderman E. Hogan) presided over the meeting whose objective was to securing certain land in the municipality for dedication as a public park and recreation ground. The resolution to secure the land was moved by Senator J. Grant. In seconding the motion, Mr. W. J. Lincoln said that the "building of the Rozelle railway had robbed them of the only recreation ground they had." The motion was supported by Aldermen Packer and Ridge, Mr. A. Sinclair, M.L.C., and Mr. Carrington. Messrs. W. J. Lincoln and P. S. Tooker were elected president and hon. secretary respectively of the citizens' committee which was formed to arrange a deputation to the Minister for Lands.

Remembrance day wreathes still on the memorial
Remembrance Day 2013
Date: Monday 11 November 2013
As at the opening of the memorial in 1921, rain necessitated an abbreviated service with the Annandale North Public School Choir and Leichhardt Band, who were to lead the Hymns, pulling out. However, the principal and students from Annandale Public School did brave the weather and laid a wreathe, along with Leichhardt Council Mayor Darcy Byrne, the RSL and the Vietnam Veterans Association. The bugle was played. See video
