To commemorate Armistice Day 11.11.2009, here in Australia, this is the front page of the West Australian Newspaper.
I dedicate this to all the 'ordinary' men and women of all colour, creed and nation who fought for freedom in the belief they were making a different and/or in a sense of duty to their fellow man.
At 11am today, the anniversary of the end of Worlld War I, we had just arrived at the beach for a swim, this to me reminds me of the sacrifices made to win me that freedom.
Footnote: WWI officially ended on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month 1918.
Lest we forget.
