Yarram Indoor Sports Centre, Cnr Smith Street and Grant Street, Yarram. Mongolian settlers came to the area in the 1850's. Chin Langtip arrived as a nineteen-year-old from Mongolia and soon after arrival established his own prosperous market garden business in Tarraville. In 1870 Chin married Mary Ann Prout and several years later, Mary Ann's sister, Elizabeth, became his second wife or 'friend' as she was then known as. Between them they had 17 children. In February 1916, four of the sons, Leslie, Bertie, Ernie, and Henry were assigned to the 16th Reinforcements for the 4th Light Horse Regiment. They all returned home to Victoria in 1919 after having fought in the battle of Beersheba ending a crucial battle in the Sinai Palestine campaign of World War One. In honour of this, Heesco has created this huge 26 metre long mural.
