Fierce fighting at Gallipoli, on the Western Front and in the Middle East during World War I left an indelible mark on the psyche of the young Australian nation. In our troops’ courage, mateship and heavy sacrifices, we discovered true pride, infinite respect and eternal gratitude.
Now, more than a century later, the intensity of those feelings are undiminished. Paying tribute to the men and women who partook in Australia’s fearful coming-of-age, these official commemoratives, represent timeless memorials to lives shattered by the brutality of conflict.
