- The Great War Collection 1914
The Great War of 1914-1918 touched the lives
of all Australians. From a population of less than 5,000,000,
more than 330,000 Australians sailed across the world to join
this 'war to end all wars'. What was initially considered a great
adventure exacted a great toll. Some 60,000 would die, more than
155,000 would be physically wounded and tens of thousands more
would carry the mental scars of war to their graves. The story
of the Australian Imperial Force's fight begins at Gallipoli.
The courage shown on this rugged Turkish peninsular gave rise
to a sense of national identity, pride and spirit which carried
Australian troops through the trenches of Europe and the deserts
of the Middle East.
In this, the first year in our 100th anniversary
commemorations of World War I (1914-18), the story of our boys'
passage to and through Gallipoli unfolds with the superb Sands
of Gallipoli Limited Edition Medallions. View
