About this website


This website has been established by Smith Sculptors,  designers of the HMAS Sydney II Memorial. The website is intended to convey the story from the artists perspective on how the Memorial was designed and built, using information from their own studio archives.

The story is told from its inception to final dedication and includes the ‘ Pool of Remembrance’  which was the 5th Element added to the Memorial in commemoration of finding  HMAS Sydney II, 16th March 2008.
