Remembrance Day.

Today is Remembrance Day.

At this time, all around Australia, we are observing a 1 minute silence for our fallen heroes.

They shall grow not old,
As we that are left grow old,

Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun,

And in the morning
,
We will remember them.


I'd like to share some photos I took at a recent visit to the Australian War Memorial & Museum, Canberra - such an emotional, harrowing, yet peaceful place:





To all Defence Force Personnel, past and present, fighting or fallen - THANK YOU.
