My first shot is of…

a steel construction.

This may help identify it.

And if this does not, then I am….


this will. 

One building,

three differing perspectives.

Daily Prompt-Ceremony

~~~~~

On August 5, 1914, my Grandfather was part of a gun crew

which fired the first allied shot of what was

to become known as The Great War.

At the time he was stationed at Point Nepean which

is situated on the eastern side of the entrance to Port Phillip Bay.

The cannon on the right was the one used for the task.

The barrel on the left was used to fire the first shot

of World War II.

One hundred years later, August 5, 2014,

on bright sunny day in winter

a ceremony was conducted to commemorate that event.

 

All the ceremony the military could muster

was included to mark  the occasion.

 

We had mixed messages about who could lay the wreath,

so as my Grandfather did we took things into our own hands

and I and my two Aunties, Dad’s sisters,

to lay our wreath.

My Auntie, on the right, has since passed.

Just before 1245 a freighter came into view as it did in 1914.

 

Then at precisely 1245 a ceremonial shot

was fired from Point Nepean,

to mark the centenary of firing of the

First Shot of World War I.
