AWM by Night   Leave a comment

Saturday, 30 January, 2016

All through January, The Australian War Memorial, at the top of ANZAC Parade, has been staging special late night openings to enable the general public to view the Commemorative Area, which includes the Pool of Reflection, the Eternal Flame, the Hall of Memory containing the Tomb of the Unknown Australian Soldier Volunteer and the Roll of Honour which list the name of every single Australian service person who has died in the line of duty since 1850.

As this was the final night, I was expecting hordes of people to turn up, but I was pleasantly surprised to discover that as I was the first to arrive this evening. Therefore, I  had my own personal guide, Julie, who spent an hour or so taking me around the above exhibits reciting countless stories about various aspects and people commemorated within the AWM.
