On this day, 14 January 1942. The 2/30th Battalion of the Australian 8th Division inflicts heavy casualties on Japanese in an ambush at Gemas in the first Australian contact with Japanese troops of the Second World War. Over 1000 casualties were suffered by the Japanese convoy (travelling on bicycles) with the loss of fifty Australians. Lest we forget.

The Roll of Honour is a visual representation of over 102,000 members of the Australian Armed forces who have died during, or as a result of war service in over 28 different conflicts dating back to 1885.
Two out of three soldiers were killed or wounded in the Great War alone! Very humbling experience for any Australian.
Would highly recommend a visit! Lest we forget.

The Shrine of Remembrance at ANZAC Square with the eternal flame that has been burning continuously since 11 November 1930.
ANZAC Square, despite being situated between two main streets in Brisbane city, is a peaceful place to just sit & watch the world go by. It is also one of my favourite places in Brisbane (if not 'the' favourite). (ANZAC = Australian & New Zealand Army Corps)

For sometime of my particular research interests has been Egypt’s Commonwealth War Grave cemeteries - 2018 will see the start of the Cairo War Graves Project which will commemorate the lives of the 2,400 men and women resting in the Cairo War Memorial Cemetery. The team will be building a searchable database recording the stories of these remarkable individuals and a selection of the stories will be published in a forthcoming book. We would be very interested to hear from any families with relatives buried in the cemetery. #WW1 #WW2 #cairo #cairoegypt #soldieringinegypt #militaryhistory #wargraves #greatwar #soldiering #anzacspirit #masseystourists #instadaily #instahistory #instahistories #egypt


In remembrance & respect on the passing of Havala Laula - our last Fuzzy Wuzzy Angel . On Christmas Eve aged 92 in the remote village of Kagi on the Kokoda Track Mr Laula departed this World for the next , may he truly rest in peace 🙏🏼🇵🇬🇦🇺#png #fuzzywuzzyangel #anzacspirit #kokodatrack

PLEASE read the inscriptions in these grave stones!! There were more UNKNOWN SOLDIERS than known 💔 on Christmas Eve, I visited the burial site of many Australian soldiers who died on July 19-20th 1916 at Fromelles, France in World War I. Nearly 5000 Australians died at war here on that day, the highest amount of Australians to ever die in one battle. It was the first time I actually saw the graves of Australia soldiers. Australia has many monuments and memorials, but our soldiers always fought in foreign lands to help others. None of the memorials at home touched me the way this did. I stood there in the freezing cold at dusk, truly in the middle of nowhere, feeling too sad to leave them alone on Christmas still so far from their homes... so I stayed for the going down of the sun. They are heroes and they lay so far away from our beautiful homeland, but they are at peace in the beautiful countryside of France. ❤️ #anzac #anzacspirit #australia #wwi #fromelles
