Physical description

The clock made of marble, known as the Handcock Clock at the Wangaratta Museum, was presented to Harriet and Charles Handcock of Myrrhee near Wangaratta on Anzac Day in 1917, by the Oxley Shire, for the commitment of eight of their nine sons to the First World War. Two of their sons were killed during the war and three others came home with injuries.
One young son and two girls were left home.
The Handcock Clock was donated to the Wangaratta Historical Society in 1967 and is on display in the Museum.
