Photographer's Note

Today, November 11 2012 marks the annual Remembrance Day (Armistice Day), acknowledging the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. I have chosen to post this photo of the Lone Pine Memorial at Gallipoli which I visited earlier this year. It marks the location of great conflict in WW1 between Turkish and Commonwealth (Australian, New Zealand, English and other nationalities) forces in the battle over the Dardanelles channel leading to Constantinople (Istanbul). This is the place where the ANZAC legend was forged, and looms large in the Australian and New Zealand national identity. May those killed in war rest in peace.
