Book of Remembrance

1931

  1. S. Templeton, Walter Taylor

This book lists the women and men of Albury and region who served in the First World War. It is handmade, decorated and illustrated.

P.S. Templeton completed the hand lettering, and the binding and decoration were done by Walter Taylor in Sydney in 1931.

Wal Taylor was born in Queensland and was a trained bookbinder. He served in Egypt and France during the First World War.

As well as being an important record, the book is a work of art in its own right.

 

The title page reads:

The Great War

1914 – 1918

The Book of Remembrance

The tumult and the shouting dies

The captains and kings depart

Still stands thine ancient sacrifice

An humble and a contrite heart

Lord God of hosts be with us yet

Lest we forget – lest we forget.”
