"In the Hall of Memory at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra there are 15 stained- glass windows. Each shows a figure dressed in military uniform, and under each figure is a word which describes a quality displayed by Australians during wartime. One window features a signaller and an open flower. He represents the frank and honest way in which Australians have told the stories of their wartime experiences."--Department of Veteran's Affairs website.
