Pompey Elliott Commemorative Unveiling

Posted by goldengrains on May 25, 2015 at 8:05 PM

We were delighted to take part in the unveiling of the Pompey Elliott commemorative bust on May 24, 2015. Our secretary, Carolyn Olive, who is also secretary of the Charlton Forum, was the prime motivator to get this project off the ground. After museum members were invited to the unveiling of a Pompey Elliott statue in Ballarat in 2011, they were so impressed the idea for a statue for Charlton was born. The sculptor Louis Laumen was approached and agreed to create a bust based on his Ballarat statue. The museum contributed funds towards the project and Carolyn wrote the text that appears on the plaques. For those who dont know who Pompey is - he was a famous WW1 General and was born in West Charlton. Many of our soldiers were in his 7th Battalion and he remained a friend to the Charlton community throughout the war and afterwards. Photo: Courtesy of Jenny Pollard.
