Proudly showing you our younger son Stuart, a Captain in the Australian Army Reserves, at the Anzac Day service on the 25th April 2010.
This day means a lot to us, as my husbands father served in the Austraian Army at the age of 18 years, fought and was wounded at Galipoli .
He rarely spoke of his experiences, which was understandable, as it must have been a really dreadful time in his life.

Look at those medals on his chest! What are they for? I was military and I'm always intrigued by the medals I see in the military from other countries.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...
