Point Nepean flag pole at the 2014

Commemoration of Firing the First Shot

of World War I,

August 5, 1914,

at 1245 hours.

 

 Geelong Football Stadium

home of the

Geelong Cats. 

Sadly the art work is no longer.

 

 

Technically I believe my Kalahari Scrub Robin

is in the wrong half of the frame.

It should have room to run into.

However to include its shadow

the rule had to be ignored.

 

 

Living street art in Melbourne.

history

the whole series of past events connected
with a particular person or thing.

I doubt that my Grandfather, or any of his colleagues realised that

they were making history at 1245, August 5th, 1914

when they fired The First Shot of World War 1.

Nor would they have contemplated that 100 years henceforth…

…their descendants would gather at Point Nepean…

 

…for a re-enactment of that day to remember fallen loved ones

and those that had their lives shortened

after serving in The Great War.

history

*  the study of past events,
particularly in human affairs.
*  the whole series of past events connected
with a particular person or thing.

I doubt if my Grandfather, or any member

of the Gun Crew which fired…

…the First Shot of World War I,

thought their actions

on August 5, 1914,

at 1245 hours

(AEST-Aust Eastern Standard Time)

would…

…write them into family history books

let alone World History books.
