How many Australians gave their lives to help the British army in World War 1. My UK family served in the field ambulances and I had not appreciated that there were Australians serving serving in the same Royal Army Medical Corp (RAMC)

The national war memorial is a somber memorial located on the North Terrace. The statue itself is impressive but don't miss the sad and long list of names, located inside the memorial.

Was there on Remembrance Day and the love for those who had lost their lives for others to live better was tangible. It is a place to reflect and appreciate what we have and what we have lost.
