I was very moved to find as many memorials downunder, some of them quoting names of places familiar to me. So many men, and some women too, left their peaceful homes to fight and often die in Europe. I know they did so because they felt British, but still... They died away from home, away from the ones who loved them, and they suffered to help us. This post is a little "thank you" to them.
ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The memorials deal with WWI, and Gallipoli. But not only.
The pictures below are from the Shrine of Remembrance in Melbourne.
There are 4,000 medals, each representing 100 Victorians
