Dulcie Dyne unveils ninth ceramic Memorial lane mural

Craig Warhurst

FORMER Gympie mayoress, Dulcie Dyne, unveiled the ninth ceramic mural in Memorial Lane last night on behalf of the Gympie RSL Sub-Branch.

The ninth panel is called the Spirit of the Anzacs 1915-2015.

The new mural differs from the other eight murals by being three dimensional.

Four of the figures, featuring the navy, army, air force and nursing pop out of the wall.

Along the bottom of the new mural are four brass plaques.

One of the plaques reads, "The 'Spirit' stays in the hearts of Australians and New Zealanders.

"The bond of the two countries lives on in the defence forces, the community, the schools, and on sporting fields.

"It reminds us of those who served."
