Australian War Memorial
3 Attachment(s)
The Australian War Memorial is Australia's national memorial to the members of all its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in the wars of the Commonwealth of Australia.

The Australian War Memorial was opened in 1941, and is widely regarded as one of the most significant memorials of its type in the world.

The memorial includes an extensive national military museum.

Thankyou Ralna for a most compasionate view of our war memorial

As you say, the building is one that is well-favoured around the world; the dome in the Hall of Rememberance is a beautiful work of art; the poppies in the wall are to remember deaths in the fields of Flanders, France back in WW-1 ... and so it goes on

We yesterday on April 25th, again remembered our war dead. Many ceremonies around Australia were held with moments of silence in rememberance

Australia is unique in that April 25th celebrates the Gallipoli defeat of australian troops while trying to invade turkey.
While we honour those who have died in wars protecting our way of life, we remember the futility or war, the brutality of war and hope that no-one ever needs to enter a war again

Again, Thankyou Ralna for your images
Regards, Phil
