At the Battle of Bullecourt allied armies

had to attack the German army which

was situated on the higher (upper) ground.

There was little or no way for allied soldiers to

gain any protection from German bullets

on these open fields.

Wouldn’t this be great…
ANZAC_8495Ba free tour of Europe and Great Britain?

ANZAC_8495AUntil you see the Big Picture!.

Last week I visited the

Spirit of ANZAC

Centenary Experience

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

would commence.

The exhibition is travelling around Australia

culminating in Sydney in June next 2017.

Click this  link to see if it is coming to a city near you

Allow a couple of hours to view it (slowly).

Sponsored by

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.

Remembrance Day

A Pittance of Time

As Remembrance Day nears, it was timely to receive the link below in an email.

I was lucky, both my Grandfather’s returned from the Great War, although, one was minus a leg and the other had spent many months in hospital due to a dose of mustard gas.
