Lyndon Dadswell (1908-1986)
Greece, Lyndon Dadswell, Australian War Memorial, ART40925

As none of the official artists have recorded the Greek campaign I have based my work along those lines. Greece group represents the 16th Australian Infantry Brigade during the march back over Mount Olympus. Straining, climbing, exhausted, half frozen soldiers. Owing to complete absence of roads, lack of unit transport, intense cold and great distances covered, this movement stands high as a feat of physical endurance.

Bronze 67.8 x 46.8 x 48.5 cm
Bronze cast in Melbourne, 1984; plaster cast in Sydney, 1943
Acquired in 1984
