A little ANZAC story....


Well-Known Member
Well, a good friend of mine, who lived in Canada and was in the Canadian Forces, moved to Australia quite a few years ago. Like me, he is an avid collector and loves his military history.

He did a tour with the Australian Army in Iraq in 2008. Everyone of his friends knows he is a collector and that he is passionate about history. So when his buddy went on leave to Turkey, he went and visited Gallipoli, not only to see his history but that of the ANZAC troops. Well..... he found this on the landing beach some 90+ years later...

Well.... when he got back from Iraq, he made plans to visit his old home in Canada.

When he came to visit me...... well..... he gave me a little piece of history... It now has a proud place in my collection..
