Cee’s Odd Ball Challenge-16Wk-8


Odd Ball

Week 8, 2016


Spirit of ANZAC

Centenary Experience

at Melbourne’s Exhibition Centre.Spirit-of-ANZAC_8500

 Australian troops at The Great Pyramid of Giza.

Visitors can look through the ‘cameras’ and

the names of soldiers appear in the viewfinder.

Spirit-of-ANZAC_8499This picture is well-known because

not all of the soldiers are alive.

One died the day before this shot was taken

and his mates gave him a helping hand

so he could have his photo taken with them.


Visitors receive an iPod and headphones

before entering the exhibition.

Each time one enters a new section appropriate

commentary commences.

The exhibition is travelling around Australia

culminating in Sydney in June next 2017.

Sponsored by

this exhibition is free,

although you are asked to book tickets.

Visitors are allowed to take cameras into the exhibit,

although flash photography is banned.

I was also given permission to by Telstra

use my photos in Social Media.

    • I daresay it is not a novel exhibit to Australia…but it is something that all should see. There is one section where we can view from an Observation Post, which I found moving as my Grandfather was awarded a medal for helping out an O.P. while under fire.


  1. Could you please explain this! “One died the day before this shot was taken
    and his mates gave him a helping hand so he could have his photo taken with them.”


    • In the second photo, just to left of centre, is the only soldier who appears to be standing. His left arm is at about 45 degrees to his body and the soldier behind him appears to be giving him a massaage on the shoulders. My information is that the ‘standing’ soldier would not be feeling the massage. He died the day before the photo was due to be taken. At least that is what I have been told by several and varied sources.
