ROLL OF HONOUR - Acrylic Desk Block
Australian War Memorial, Canberra, Australia
In the still calmness on this morning before sunrise, the War Memorial's Roll Of Honour was lit up. With the dominance of the red reflected from poppies on the rolls, I reflected on the scale of the sacrifice commemorated. Pondering so many names on the Roll Of Honour brings both a sense of respect and immense loss.
The scale of sacrifice made in the name of our nation is captured on the War Memorial's Roll Of Honour. A long series of bronze panels records the names of over 102,000 members of the Australian armed forces who have given their lives.
