There had been a Gordon Memorial Committee in Melbourne since 1910,
of which Mr Charles R. Long was the President and Mr. J.D. Jennings the Hon. Secretary.
By October 30, 1932, they had raised sufficient funds to erect the above magnificent
Statue by Paul Raphael Montford (1868-1938) outside the Parliament in Melbourne,
which was unveiled with great ceremony by the Premier of Victoria and his entire Cabinet
and the Leader of the Opposition, in a ceremony in which there were Hymns as well as Speeches.
The unveiling date was meant to be for his Centenary (October 19, 1933) but could not be kept.
The statue was unveiled on 30th October 1932.
