The stained glass window was erected in the memorial hall to commemorate the centenary of the ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) landings at Gallipoli in Turkey in April 1915 during World War One.   

The Centenary also commemorates those who have served in the various conflicts after World War One in which Australia has been involved. Funding was received through the ANZAC Centenary Grants Program.

The design is a central arch of “Remembrance and Respect” topped by the Rising Sun badge flanked each side by a single poppy in the centre of a cross. The Kookaburra beneath the archway is the Scott Creek Primary School’s emblem. The school’s original stone building next to the hall was built, in part, by either the men themselves or by relatives of those who served.

The line work beneath the arch represents the 1880 land divisions of the 20 acre “Working Men’s Blocks”, some of which were made available to ex-servicemen from the Great War as part of the Soldier Settlement Scheme. The lower background design depicts previous silver mining which occurred at the nearby Almanda Mine. A local flower, the Golden Pennant, is included with other floral aspects to symbolise the ongoing environmental importance of the area represented by several conservation parks.

The Glass Foundry at Stirling undertook the design, construction and installation of this panel
