Naval Memorial

It is pleasing to note that the Naval Memorial Statue at Southbank has and will in the future be the center point for all Naval Memorials here in Brisbane. The only concern is that for some unknown reason it is refered too as the Jack statue instead of the Naval Memorial Statue.It will be said that naval ratings were known as Jack Tars which is in reference to sailors in wind driven ships and it originated in the USA and as our statue and memorial is truely Austrlian.
