Ebbw Vale Memorial Park


In the Ipswich suburb of Ebbw Vale, the memory of young men cut down in their prime in WWI lingers by a football field. The AL Petrie soldier statue memorial was originally unveiled near Ebbw Vale railway station on 14 May 1918. It was relocated in 1969 to Ebbw Vale Memorial Park, once known as the Whitwood grounds, named after a local colliery which had fielded two soccer teams since the 1890s.

Among the 22 names of those who enlisted in WWI are soccer team members William Jeffrey, Peter Jeffrey, H Mills and LW Breslin.

Unlike other states which favoured more architectural monuments, many Queensland communities chose the soldier statue for its traits of youth, masculinity, loyalty, bravery and innocence.

Soccer is still played on the grounds, along with cricket, softball and touch football and major community gatherings.

Booval War Memorial


One of Australia's best known sculptors, Daphne Mayo, is believed to have created the Booval WWI memorial while apprenticed to Ipswich monumental mason Frank Williams. The memorial, a slightly smaller than life-sized soldier standing on a plinth, was unveiled on 15 February 1919 by Governor Sir Hamilton Goold-Adams.

The marble and granite memorial honours the 221 local men who served during WWI.

A committee representing the Ipswich suburbs of Booval, Silkstone, Newtown and Raceview had raised ?499 through entertainment and public subscriptions during the previous year. A voluntary 'working bee' had prepared the foundations.

War had delayed Daphne Mayo from taking up a travelling scholarship and she bided her time learning the art of carving with Williams. The Booval statue is attributed to her because of timing and the strong resemblance it bears to a model she made. Its style echoes Williams'.

Mayo's work includes the Brisbane City Hall tympanum and the Queensland Women's War Memorial in Brisbane's ANZAC Square.

Plaques honouring 16 local men who died in WWII as well as tributes to later conflicts have since been added.
