ANZAC DAY 25 April 1915

This World War One celebration, 4 August 1914 – 11 November 1918, hides the agony experienced by those who were conscripted to defend the imperial powers: Britain, France, Russia-later USA v Germany – Austria-Hungary – Turkey.

The Vietnam War, 1 November 1955 – 30 April 1975, changed the focus somewhat on perpetual war for perpetual peace but rumour has it that the US president will next declare war on Sunshine!
