In Memory of the Mariners and Wharfies who died in the Bombing of Darwin.

There are new memorials on Stokes Hill Wharf today preparatory to tomorrow’s celebrations. I’d like to share them with you today in memory of the Bombing and the death of non-combatants.

The new memorial at Stokes Hill Wharf.

 

The list of dead.

I like the symbolism of the new bombing mural contrasted with the modern skyline of Darwin…undefeated and resilient. Another new memorial in Darwin.

The mariners' mural erected by the Darwin Port Authority: Art Director Barry Shackleton and illustrator Alex Lehours.
