Photographer's Note

Yesterday was Anzac Day in Australia, also known as Veteran's Day in the USA, & Remembrance Day (November 11) in some other countries. 'Anzac' is: Australian & New Zealand Army Corps.

I had a 12 hour power blackout here yesterday from 7:30 pm to 7:30 am this morning, so couldn't upload it on the day as I would have liked. Taken in King's Park Perth, with the Swan River below at left.

This particular memorial commemorates the Western Australian soldiers who fought in World War I, (1914-1918), and also, most soldiers from the eastern states enroute to Gallipoli in Turkey, stopped at Albany first. For many, it was to be their last view of Australia, forever.

In addition to Gallipoli, many Australians fought in France & Belgium. The French in Villers-Bretonneux were true to their promise, never to forget their liberation by Australian & British troops from Germany, in World War 1, & every year since, have commemorated their freedom. More info here:
