Walking along Murray Street in Tanunda, was your curiosity piqued by the oddly-positioned monument near Julius Street? Hear of E. H. Coombe from authors Helen Hennessy & Patricia Booth. A newspaper editor, parliamentarian for the Barossa, an opponent to anti-German measures of World War I; defender of Barossa residents persecuted for their heritage.
