Apparently, a few weeks ago, after losing all Frnech WW1 Veterans but one, who still survives, now the last German WW1 Veteran has past away. May the countries that were involved in this war always remember, live in eternal peace with each other and honor the dead. If there is war - let it be in 1/72 scale on the gaming table.
in Australia they thought that when the last Great War veteran passed on, the memorial day (called ANZAC Day) would start to fade.
However it has gone from strength to strength.
Nearly every town has its Dawn Services & the capital cities have large & moving ceremonies.
Veterans from later wars march in parades & children also march, wearing their fathers' or grandfathers' medals.
The Returned Services League motto is "Lest we forget".
There is little chance of forgetting their sacrifice in this country.
