"At a mile distant their thousand hooves were stuttering thunder, coming at a rate that frightened a man - they were an awe inspiring sight, galloping through the red haze - knee to knee and horse to horse - the dying sun glinting on bayonet points..." Trooper Ion Idriess

The Australian Light Horse Studies Centre aims to present an accurate history as chroniclers of early Australian military developments from 1899 to 1920.

Ataturk Memorial Garden, Canberra, Part 2
Topic: Gen - Ataturk Pk, CNB

Ataturk Memorial Garden, Canberra

Part 2

A Walk Through the Park

 

Ataturk Memorial Garden and the Australian War Memorial

[Click on picture for larger version.]

 

After a walk through the copse of gum trees, the walk opens up to reveal a grassy space with the Ataturk Memorial Garden overlooked by the Australian War Memorial.

 

The Kemal Ataturk Plaque

[Click on picture for larger version.]

 

The plaque reads:

Lieutenant Colonel Mustafa Kemal (1881-1938) commander of the 19th Infantry Division led the Turkish troops who resisted the ANZAC soldiers advancing from the Ari Burnu landings at Gallipoli. As the founder and first President of modern Turkey, Mustaf Kemal Ataturk is regarded as the 'father of the nation'. This memorial designed by architecture firm PDCM Pty Ltd, honours Kemal Ataturk and also the heroism and self-sacrifice of both the ANZAC and Turkish troops taking part in that bitterly fought campaign.

The memorial consists of a crescent-shaped wall on a circular paved are. The form of the wall reflects the crescent and five-pointed star of the Turkish flag. At the centre of the memorial, placed in a time capsule, is soil from the battlefields of Gallipoli.

Centrally located on the wall is a bronze likeness of Ataturk - a gift of the Turkish government by the Turkish sculptor Hüseyin Gezer. The inscription beneath - Ataturk's own words - pays warm tribute to the ANZACs and reflects his understanding of the awful cost of war. Surrounding the memorial are pine trees, Pinus halepensis, grown from seed collected from the Gallipoli 'lone pine'.

 

For the usual audience, a plaque was erected between the two flags detailing the reason for the park. It is well workth reading.

9th Australian Light Horse Regiment

Embarkation Roll: D - F

 

The following is a composite alphabetical roll of all members of 8th Australian Light Horse Regiment who are known to have embarked overseas during the Great War.

Each man is listed with:

Service Number

Rank at Embarkation

First Names

Family Name

If applicable, the false name used

 

Notes

Note 1: All soldiers’ names are linked to the specific unit and date when embarkation occurred. By utilising the link, upon the Embarkation Roll is a brief military biography of the individual. Also on the page are details and picture of the ship in which embarkation occurred for that specific soldier.

Note 2: There are duplications of some names in the following list. The reason for this is that the soldier embarked on more than one occasion. This was the simplest way of resolving the problem of multiple entries for a single individual.

Note 3: In comparing this roll with the official Embarkation Rolls published by the Department of Defence during the Great War, it will be noticed that some names are absent. The reason for this lies in the fact that when the official Embarkation Rolls were compiled, last minute absentees for one reason or another were recorded as embarking whereas in actuality, no embarkation occurred. In addition, there are other names that have been included that do not appear in the official Embarkation Rolls and yet they embarked with that particular group.

Ataturk Memorial Garden, Canberra

Part 3

About Ataturk 

 

Entering Ataturk Memorial Garden.

[Click on picture for larger version.]

 

The above picture is of the full memorial. The five red pillars, each representing the points of the star upon the Turkish flag, stand as sentinels, overlooking the scene. While appearing large when close up, at a distance they are subsumed by the gum trees surrounding the garden. It is a similar message to that of Ataturk. The memorial is part of Australian soil. The sons of Turkey are also remembered in friendly soil.

 

Ataturk Memorial Garden bilingual explanatory sign.

[Click on picture for larger version.]

 

The sign reads:

Ataturk Memorial Garden

In 1985, Seventy years after the Gallipoli Campaign of World War 1, the Turkish Government agreed to recognise the name "Anzac Cove" for the place on the Gallipoli Peninsula where the first Australian and New Zealand troops landed, on 25 April 1915.

In return for this gesture, the Australian Government established this memorial garden which honours the heroism and self-sacrifice that distinguished both the ANZAC and Turkish troops who took part in that bitterly fought campaign.

Kemal Ataturk (1881 - 1938) was founder and first President of modern Turkey, and leader of Turkish forces in the Gallipoli Campaign. The words inscribed on the memorial are Ataturk's tribute to those Anzacs who did not return from Gallipoli.

 

One noticable item is that most information at the Ataturk Memorial Garden is the number of bilingual signs.

 

The Creation Story.

[Click on picture for larger version.]

 

The plaque reads:

Soil from Anzac Cove, Turkey was placed beneath this plaque at the commemoration of this memorial on 25 April 1985, the 70th anniversary of the landing at Gallipoli, by His Excellency Mr. Vahit Halefoğlu, Minister for Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Turkey in the presence of the Honourable Gordon Scholes, Minister for Territories and Acting Minister for Veterans' Affairs of the Commonwealth of Australia and the Honourable Frank O'Flynn, Minister for Defence and Associate Minister for Foreign Affairs, New Zealand.

 

In the centre of the courtyard described by stone semi circular wall is a plaque giving a full explanation of the construction impetus behind the Ataturk Memorial Garden.
