Together at Arms

A new sculpture of a New Zealand digger will be unveiled on the Anzac Bridge in Sydney. The digger will stand guard on the other side of the road, opposite its Australian equivalent, thus completing the bridge’s heroic Anzac spirit. Premier Morris Iemma said: “The Anzac story belongs to two nations, not just one. It is a precious inheritance shared by both sides of the Tasman.” The newcomer will be the same size and in the same “rest on arms reverse” position as the Australian digger and will wear a traditional New Zealand uniform, with a “lemon-squeezer” hat.
