Fallen honoured at anzac cove western front
For many men the sacrifices made by serving in World War One were never forgotten.
The Australian soldier who was honoured at the Australian National War Memorial in Canberra on Friday is one of thousands who have been honored in honour of our country’s fallen in the military.
A Royal Australian Navy Captain in the 1813-1815 campaign in the Gulf of Guinea, Captain Michael O’Toole was decorated with a chevalier medal – the highest award the US Navy could award the Australian for service in that war.

His service also includes serving on the ship Endeavour, where he was the ship’s first gunner.
In a news conference, the Commander-in-Chief, Michael Spence, said he had been proud of his friend and noted his contribution to victory during an important battle that involved the Americans.
“You do not win a war by doing the dirty job, but by doing it very, very well,” he said.
“You are only as good as your greatest weapon and that weapon was one of the many that served him.”
In a statement, O’Toole’s widow, Elizabeth, described him as a dedicated soldier who served with pride and distinction.
“My husband was an honourable, hard-working, well-trained and well-maintained soldier and a real inspiration to others in our lives,” she said.
The ceremony was attended by about 1,500 men and women from a range of age groups, with a few coming from as far afield as Germany and Japan.
“It is a wonderful honour to be here and to be associated with the Australian Navy,” Corporal Chris Beazley, from the New Zealand Defence Force said.
“I have had a chance to spend some time with my brother-in-law and he’s one of t세종출장샵hose guys who always takes on the responsibility of doing what he thinks is right for the country, which is of course the defence of the nation.”
“We all want to see a safe future for the Australian people but when you st예스 카지노art to see the effects that war has had, it becomes clear what we are doing when we go in there,” Corporal David Walker said
