Back up

THE coat of arms on the Perth general post office is being replaced this week.

The building has two coats of arms (one UK, one Australian) and in January the Voice reported vandals had decapitated the unicorn and nearly kicked the lion’s head off the poms’ sigil.

After the pieces had been sitting in a sergeant’s office for a while, Perth councillor Reece Harley put the GPO caretakers in touch with the coppers and the lost bits were reunited. A local sculptor put them back together and this week workers started to put the puzzle back together on the GPO.
