Rising Sun gifted to the home of the Coo-ee

Ralph, Archie and Maddie Chrystall of Larras Lee patiently waited for the online auction so that they could bid on another army tank to
add to Archie’s growing collection of War Memoribillia.

We’re not sure whether the Chrystall family won the tank – but with dad, Ralph, taking another phone call – Archie and Maddie waited to hear if their bid was the lucky one.

As can happen … (or can it?) – A phone call came in – answered by Archie – to offer a large, beautifully made, sculpture of the Rising Sun. It didn’t take Archie long to realise that the sculpture was important. He knew it well being a keen 7 year old attendee of the Sydney ANZAC March – where he has marched with the 2/1st Pioneers proudly wearing the medals of his late grandfather, Gordon Chrystall.

Archie said ‘yes’ to the auction offer. Luckily Ralph could afford it – and also thought it was a good purchase. Too big to remain in Molong – Ralph, Archie and Maddie thought about a new ‘home’.
Remembering the Coo-ee March coming through Molong a couple of years ago – Gilgandra where the march started – came to their minds.
A phone call to the Council and local community of Gilgandra secured the right place for the Rising Sun – and the home of the Coo-ee March.

Well done to Archie, Maddie and Ralph on their purchase. Gilgandra is the perfect place.
