Stone boulder with bronze and aluminium plaque
Kings Domain, Birdwood Avenue
It is to Edward George Honey that we owe the ritual of observing two minutes silence in commemoration of the war fallen. The plaque of this simple memorial reads: 'In memory of, 1885-1922, a Melbourne journalist who, while living in London, first suggested the solemn ceremony of silence now observed in all British countries in remembrance of those who died in war "Lest we Forget".'
It was unveiled in May 1965.
