A chip off the old Lone Pine
The Gallipoli legend lives on in Australia - and the famous Lone Pine - and here is a descendent of that pine.
I ws rather moved. Even though the tree is struggling. A pine should really flourish like a weed anywhere.
I think it is even more moving because the cars flash by it on the Burwood Highway, and there is really no reason to come here, except on that one day of the year.
Next to the War Memorial in the little park on the corner of Wattle Grove and Burwood Highway.
Most of the little places in Australia have a war memorial. This is where the locals gather for the dawn service on Anzac Day.
It is a plain monument - but as sad as they all are. The column has four sides and there are plaques on each side for all the recent wars.
The Malaya, Korea, Borneo Conflict.
The Vietnam Conflict.
There is no more room for any more wars or conflicts.
