The Memorial Hall was the venue for balls and socials for the small group of people living on the island of Samarai….if those walls could talk.

In front of the building you can just see a memorial: this was erected on the 50th anniversary of Gallipoli, 25th April 1965. Peter’s parents were probably there but he was at boarding school.

The Gallipoli memorial: this would have been of significance to my mother-in-law whose uncle died at Gallipoli.
