Long Description:
On the western cemented stone gate pillar is a brass plaque facing Gavan Street. It reads:

	 On the 11th November 1951

   These gates were officially unveiled by

	Mrs MARGARET LUMSDEN

     representing the families of the fallen
	in the 2nd World War 1939 - 1945

 "At the going down of the sun and in the morning
	    we will remember them."

The gates were a gift, by public donations, to the
          BRIGHT Progress Association

The ornamental wrought iron gates have a semi-circle, above which are the gold painted words: "LEST WE FORGET", with further scroll work above them. On the stone pillars are 'gas lamp' styled lights hanging above the pillars. The gates are hung over a concrete pathway, which leads on down to the Bright Splash Park.
