The Australian War Memorial is Australia's national memorial to the members of its armed forces and supporting organisations who have died or participated in wars. It is situated in the capital of Canberra and we went for a look today. You could easily spend a day or more going round but we were a little restricted with parking time. The WWI displays really bring home the horror of life in the trenches and the disaster of Gallipoli for the ANZACS. Moving through to WWII there is quite a lot about the RAAF supported by some impressive aircraft exhibits. However, as I was discussing with a chap from the Netherlands, the Memorial is not really a museum and is not conducive to getting good shots of the exhibits, especially as lighting is very low. I guess I can understand the latter as it perhaps adds some atmosphere to quite sombre subject matter and probably helps stop light damage to the aircraft, many of which appear to be in pretty much original unrestored condition. It is also free to enter.
