Sometimes when taking an unexpected turn around a corner, or going down a path not walked before, a quiet spot of contemplation near a war memorial will be revealed.

It was just one Saturday in the wintry sunshine that I happened upon such a monument which had been erected by the Mitcham RSL.



Beyond this imposing memorial with its lists of names, of those who fell and of those who returned, children could be observed playing in the distance, families wheeling prams, dogs held on leads - all experiencing the freedom sought for and won by those who went to war on behalf of their country.








The memorials listed on the following link are specific to the conflicts of WWl  http://monumentaustralia.org.au/themes/conflict/ww1


CENTENARY PROGRAMME UPDATE UK & NZ

Partners and funds are also being allocated in the UK and in NZ to explore, conserve and share WW1 heritage.

Many commemorative projects are now in progress.

The commemorations have been designed to encourage a wider knowledge of how WW1 shaped the world we live in today, as well as deepen our present-day understanding of the men and women of the period - whether they were at the front, or at home.
