Tonight I passed the Cenotaph on the way home and they had blocked off part of Sturt St. for the dawn service.Not far from the Cenotaph is a statue of local war hero Albert Coates ( below) He served in World War One and later became a neurosurgeon post war. in World War Two he volunteered to serve with the 8th Division in Malaya and was taken prisoner and served as a surgeon on the infamous Thai-Burma Railway where he saved hundreds of lives and was a mentor to the famous Weary Dunlop.
