My contribution for this week’s challenge…
The Spirit of ANZAC
exhibition was in Melbourne.
As I have regularly mentioned my Grandfather was
a Gunner on The Western Front after being deployed to Europe.
Was this the type of gun he was using?
Whichever side of the ‘fence’ soldiers were on…
they are people I admire.
For their courage….
in such appalling conditions.
For their ability to help a mate…
and for their ability to continue marching on.
However, these statistics we must never forget…
because these number only represent
about half the casualties of World War 1.
LEST WE FORGET
I was granted permission to photograph the exhibition
by a representative of the organiser.
Week 7, 2016
Wouldn’t this be great…
a free tour of Europe and Great Britain?
Until you see the Big Picture!.
Last week I visited the
at Melbourne’s Exhibition Centre.
Locally known as Jeff’s Shed after the Premier who
organised its construction in the early 1990s.
This was a great exhibition focusing on World War 1,
and to a lessor degree subsequent wars Australia,
or the ANZACs have been involved in.
After receiving an iPod and headphones each time
a new section was entered appropriate commentary
The exhibition is travelling around Australia
culminating in Sydney in June next 2017.
Allow a couple of hours to view it (slowly).
The Victorian Government and Telstra (our major Telco)
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.
