.....for all the fallen. All along this street you can see short memorials as you progress up the hill. Walk it....it's worth it.

We enjoyed walking down Anzac Parade in Canberra and stopping to see the many Memorials, thanks to all the Australians who served in the Vietnam campaign:O)

This simple memorial is sophisticated and thoughtful. Just stop for a few minutes of reflection on the way to the war memorial. an inspired design that has stood the test of time. One of the first memorials that the participant experiences spatially and has the photo engraving as part of the experience

A poignant memorial to those who served in this difficult conflict. Located on the drive leading up to the War Memorial, pause here to remember their service.

This was a very emotional day for me as I was a member of the Royal Australian Artillery involved in this battle. To catch up with mates, some I hadn't seen since leaving SVN in 1967 was wonderful, but it reminded us all of those that were left behind and have recently been returned home.
