Lest We Forget In Clermont

Posted by on August 25, 2012

While we stayed camping in Clermont we got out and about on Sunday. Exploring the Playground that was in the town. We decided to go for a walk along the lagoons before we headed back to the car!

Lest We Forget

There was a huge amount of war Memorial information on Boards and even a statue of the late Bill Sing. From Billboards sharing history to facts n figures and then the most amazing discovery waiting to be found……..

If you ever get a chance to explore the Clermont area, make sure you stop at the Lagoons, and leave plenty of time to read over the many different names of those that have died. It was good to read the background of some of those that have fought, died and protected our gorgeous country. Was chilling how young some of them were.

Have You seen Billy Sing Memoiral Monument?
