Private Daniel Cooper

Art mural in Shepparton Victoria.

The mural features Private Daniel Cooper who was a Yorta Yorta man and fought for Australia during World War I. Private Daniel Cooper died on a European battlefield in 1917. He was just 21 years old and is buried in Belgium.

While this mural pays respect to Private Daniel Cooper, the overarching purpose of the mural is much broader as it recognises all local Aboriginal people who represented Australia in war. Private Daniel Cooper is a local symbol and represents a story that is unknown by many Australians.
What a lovely image and a beautiful homage to this young soldier.
