Over Easter I visited Canberra to attend the National Folk Festival. While there I visited the Australian War Memorial (AWM), Australia's national memorial to the members of its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in the wars of the Commonwealth of Australia.
I had not visited the AWM for many decades. My visit was spurred by my recent interest in the First World War as a result of my research into my paternal grandfather's war service in Egypt and on the Western Front (France & Belgium) and because the AWM has recently opened its new First World War galleries.
I found visiting the AWM, especially the First World War galleries, to be a very moving experience. I in no way support war but I do support and honour the remembering of those men, women and animals who served and those who lost their lives.
