One of the must-see places we visited in Canberra and spent some hours is the War Memorial. I am always interested on history and I would love to hear about the Australian perspectives on Wars. Here are our 4 Highlights in the War Memorial, Canberra, Australia.
1.) Eugene Holzapfel
We felt privileged to be toured by Eugene Holzapfel, a World War II veteran who is now one of the famous employees in the War Memorial. He does tours inside the museum thrice a day. He is a very good story teller and some even shed tears.
2.) Matron Vivian Bullwinkel
One of the young ladies victimised in the so-called Bangka Island Massacre in Sumatra, Indonesia.
At a slim figure on below, a machine-gun bullet passed thru this uniform damaging her internal organs.
Before, all of the medallions awarded come from the United Kingdom. Finally in 1975, the Order of Australia was created.
4.) Military Machineries
The museum displays the pride of Australia’s military machineries and some of the seized equipments from their enemies such as the Swastika sign in lower left.
