MEM­O­RIES FROM THE FRONT LINES

The Riverine Herald - - FRONT PAGE -

WORLD War I, the Great War, ended at 11am 100 years ago this Sun­day. By the time the shoot­ing had stopped the flower of a gen­er­a­tion had been lost in un­par­al­leled car­nage. Yet just 20 years later it would be­gin again – but on a scale never imag­ined by the mil­i­tary, politi­cians and the power bro­kers who won the war but lost the peace. This year, to mark this his­toric mile­stone, the River­ine Her­ald, with the sup­port of Moama Bowl­ing Club, Moama RSL club, Echuca Work­ers and Ser­vices Club and Rich River Golf Club Re­sort, in­ter­viewed some of our few re­main­ing World War II vet­er­ans, all well into their 90s, about their war. The in­ter­views can be heard as pod­casts or, on Novem­ber 11, be watched as videos at river­ine­herald.com.au
