The story of this door

This door represents the homestead door for / eight young men – farmers and rural workers / – who left their homes in the Lyndhurst district to / fight in World War 1 and World War 11. Sadly they / never returned to the comfort of home, family / and friends that awaited them. It symbolizes who / they were fighting for – home, family, country and / freedom. For all those who left to fight for / Australia and its allies, let us remember the door / they walked out of and the sacrifice they made.

They shall grow not old, / as we that are left grow old; age shall not weary them, / nor the years condemn. / At the going down of the sun / and in the morning / we will remember them. / Lest We Forget.
