The Ballarat Avenue of Honour is famous for being

the first avenue of its kind in Australia (perhaps in the world)

and the longest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

It incorporates the Ballarat Arch of Victory

and extends for approximately 22 kilometres.

In total, the trees represent 3912 Ballarat and district

men and women who served in World War One,

528 of whom were killed in battle

or died of wounds or disease.

Arc de Triomphe, in Paris

Finally, the…

…Arch in Ypres’

Menin Gate

in Belgium.

I had heard my Father talk of

Menin Gate all my life.

So my 2017 visit was a

truly moving experience,

to visit the battlefields

and pass along the same roads

as my Grandfather did,

during World War I,

all those years ago.

Certainly Australia’s best known arch.

Not sure how it rates on a world stage

although we are constantly told

it is recognised the world over.
