Driver and Wipers

These imposing statues, owned by the National Gallery of Victoria, were transferred from the forecourt of the State Library of Victoria to the Shrine Reserve in April 1998.

The statues, by sculptor Charles Sargeant Jagger, are replicas of Jagger's original bronze sculptures: The Driver from the Royal Artillery Memorial in Cheshire.



‘Wipers’ is the English translation of Ypres, the battlefields of France which claimed the lives of thousands of Australians during World War 1.
