Unplanned re-creation

A life-sized sculpture in Queens Park, Maryborough, Queensland commemorates Lieutenant Duncan Chapman who is believed to be the first man ashore at Gallipoli.

The memorial display contains stones and sand from Gallipoli and depicts the first man ashore gazing towards the high cliffs at the moment the first shots rang out.

The recent floods at the memorial seem to recreate the scene of Duncan first stepping ashore.
