LEST WE FOR­GET

Melville Times - - Front Page -

SINCE the colo­nial armies were of­fi­cially united as the Com­mon­wealth Forces in 1903, thou­sands of Aus­tralians have served their coun­try both at home and over­seas, in times of peace and in times of con­flict.

The courage and ca­ma­raderie dis­played by An­zac sol­diers dur­ing World War I, es­pe­cially on the beaches of Gal­lipoli, helped forge Aus­tralia's iden­tity as a na­tion.

Our ser­vice­men and women come from all walks of life, and to all walks they re­turn.

For some, mil­i­tary ser­vice is a call­ing. For oth­ers, it is an es­cape.

Re­gard­less of how they ar­rived, they all leave hav­ing ex­pe­ri­enced the sol­i­dar­ity and mateship that is cel­e­brated each year on April 25.

In a special An­zac Day edi­tion of the Melville Times, we in­tro­duce you to 11 ex-ser­vice­men who call the lo­cal com­mu­nity home.
