Lest We Forget

For Australia, the First World War remains the costliest conflict in terms of deaths and casualties. From a population of fewer than five million, 416,809 men enlisted, of whom more than 60,000 were killed and 156,000 wounded, gassed, or taken prisoner.

There are so many statistics that I could list but the general feeling should be of overwhelming gratitude for all those who fought and helped to keep us free.
