The Australian War Memorial - Canberra
Australia did not have a national War Memorial until 1941, but the idea was conceived during the First World War by Charles Bean, who had been appointed official war correspondent for Australia in 1914.

For Americans tomorrows Veterans Day. 11th day of 11th hour on 11th month in 1919 WW1 WAR ENDED.
Shit imagine yourself in muddy trench. RATS. MUD. BARBED WIRE. You got gas mask. Why? Because your enemy is throwin poison gas.
At start of that war GERMAN BRITS RUSSIANS and FRENCH were celebrating in parades. GONNA WHIP THEIR ASSES!
Four long years later. World lost an entire generation fighting. For what really? Because Austrian Archduke Ferdinand got shot by Serbian freak.
And Australian teenage kids lookin for adventure sent halfway round the world in Turkey. For what?
Today we remember this clusterf*ck. Read the history and our eyes glaze over not really caring. 1 million died here from that country and 2 million there. All abstract numbers we think.
Here I am living in Southern California and have distant Australian relative who fought in WW1 in France.
So cliche and banal BUT HISTORY and its crazy ass past wars really have influenced our own lives on such personal level.
So we should remember those who fought in that great clusterf*ck known as WW1.
