Community outraged as ANZAC memorial was vandalized.

Nat Elliot posted to a local Facebook group this evening with absolute disgust and heart break after coming across the highest form of disrespect in Australia, at the Burpengary War Memorial.

Police have been informed of the vandalism, and yet to release any inform about the incident. Stolen from the Memorial was a large eagle and plaque as shown below.

The ANZAC War Memorial and Remembrance Gardens commemorate 100 years since the landing at ANZAC Cove and those who served in World War One. The memorial was funded by the ANZAC Centenary Grants program and Moreton Bay Regional Council. 

The memorial is calibrated so that the rising sun each ANZAC Day casts a progressive shadow over each of the ‘battle lines’ which form a chronology of key Australian military campaigns.

Nearby are flagpoles, and eleven illuminated totem poles, with campaign ribbon colours at the top, for Australia’s key military campaigns and missions overseas.
