This year is the centenary of the start of World War 1 and next year will be the centenary of the ill-fated Anzac landing at Gallipoli. So there will be lots of commemorative events to mark these occasions.
Today we were in Fremantle to see the arrival of a historic train carrying troops – some in WW1 uniforms – arrive in Freo. The troops then marched through the port city. It was all celebrating 100 years since Anzac troops made the same journey, on their way to the Middle East.
