St Luke’s tribute to Toowoomba’s war dead
A SPECIAL centenary of the armistice tribute has gone on display at St Luke’s Anglican Church in the Soldier’s Chapel.
Over the course of six months, the St Luke’s craft group, in conjunction with the parish community, have knitted and crocheted more than 2000 poppies the symbol of remembrance.
Parishioner Marion Dent said the church had also put together a list of soldiers from the Toowoomba area who died in World War I.
People can also pay tribute to the lost soldiers.
“We’re asking people when they come in to take ... a small cross and pin it up on the board, and if they want to they can write a prayer,” she said.
The church’s tribute also features letters and poetry from World War I, as well as books and other items.
Any monetary donations will go toward helping soldiers recover from injury.
The exhibition will be on display from 9am-3pm daily, until the end of November.
