Come take a Walk through our Town
El Arish Street Names and Signs
These images and biographies form the six new signs that will be made to stand at the entrance to each of the Generals’ streets in El Arish. The signs have been made possible by a Department of Veterans Affairs Australian Government’s Anzac Centenary Local Grants Program which was very kindly facilitated through the Office of the Federal Minister for Kennedy, Bob Katter.
We are honouring “our” World War 1 Generals in El Arish for their role in contributing to the safety of those servicemen who returned and named these streets.
We have a great respect for the town’s establishment as a soldier settlement and we wanted to give more substance and relevance to our role in the growing support for Anzac Day throughout the country.
