Remembrance 1of 2

Remembrance 1of 2

Visited the Australian War Memorial today. My favourite national institution. As part of the 100th anniversary of the WW1 Armistice on 11 November, 62,000 hand knitted poppies have been “planted” in the surrounding grounds as a commemoration to the 62,000 Australian service men and women who died during or as a consequence of WW1. The poppies were knitted by private citizens all over the country and sent to the War Memorial for this display.

That looks impressive to me Peter...

Lest We Forget.

We will never forget.

Beautiful tribute.

Flanders field.

That is a wonderful tribute.

Very nice tribute. Haven't been their Peter but will have to make time one day.

A very nice tribute to those that sacrificed for the rest of us.

That is great looking field of those that gave their ALL for the rest of US.

Raymond ... you must !!! Allow a few hours to see it properly. The exhibits have been updated recenly ... amazing place. The Last Post Ceremony at 5pm every day when the place closes is also a must.

Lest we forget.

When I was at the 60th anniversary of the liberation of Holland ceromonies at Holten Cemetery, they dropped 5000 real poppies from helicopters over the seated crowd, that was something to experience that I will never forget. The Netherland people are soo dedicated to making sure not one citizen forgets all who served and died. They are the most respectfull folks I met on this planet.......nice to see that other places also give enormous respect to all that have served for all conflicts.

ALL Hand Knitted - Extremely WELL DONE !!!
Ride Safe...
