In memory of our cousin, Private William "Billy" Charles REID 608 16th Battalion AIF killed in action on this day 11Apr1917. 100 years ago at Bullecourt, France. #bullecourt #bullecourtdigger #bullecourt1917 #100yearsagotoday #anzac100_sa #anzaccentenary_sa

On 15 September we commemorate the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain; the battle about which Winston Churchill famously declared: “Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few.” Nearly 3,000 RAF air crew served with the RAF Fighter Command. Approximately 20% of these were drawn from British dominions, including pilots from occupied and neutral countries. Defenders came from 16 nations in all. Australia had 25 pilots in the RAF Fighter Command, while other Australian pilots flew with RAF Bomber and Coastal Commands. Despite the might of the Luftwaffe, whose pilots outnumbered those of the British Royal Air Force (RAF) by 5 to 1, the German campaign proved unsuccessful.

The skill and sacrifice of the men who fought in the RAF against German Luftwaffe in the Battle of Britain, dealt Hitler his first major defeat of World War 2. It began the Allies long march toward victory that would take another four years to secure.

ON THIS DAY - 11 January 1973

Cessation of hostilities in Vietnam by Australian forces. The proclamation by the Governor-General, Sir Paul Hasluck, ended 11 years of Australian involvement in Vietnam, the longest duration of any war in Australia's history.

A memorial cross, made by the Assault Pioneer Platoon of 6RAR /NZ (ANZAC) (The ANZAC Battalion comprising 6th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment and a component from the 1st Battalion, Royal New Zealand Infantry Regiment), was placed in a sunlit opening in the rubber plantation for a commemorative service, three years to the day after D Company, 6th Battalion, The Royal Australian Regiment (6RAR), fought an overwhelming Viet Cong (VC) force on this spot. Eighteen Australians died here in the Battle of Long Tan. They left 245 enemy dead buried on the battlefield.

"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." #AnzacDay2016 #Anzac100_SA
