If there is any body on here in Australia who had relations in WW1 who came

to Brightlingsea, Essex to train, thought this might be of interest.

Strange that everybody can get it but me, even though I put it on,
think I'll go back to my semaphore days in the sea cadets, might have a bit more success.

Will try this, and see what happens. !!!!

Tonight on our ABC's 7.30 report the 70th Anniversary of D Day in France. Wars to end all wars come and go and this is just a speck in the overview of the courage, bravery, suffering and kindness of the men and women - and children - during those fearsome times.

At least our PM was there, John and the dreaded ABC gave some coverage . I have to admit to some discomfort in the recent trend of the ANZAC commemoration that seems to be taken over by self interest with a heck of a lot of passengers on board overt shadowing the real purpose.
