Taphophile Tragics


Detail from the Adelaide War Memorial. The Spirit of Compassion, bearing aloft the body of a dead soldier, symbolizes and commemorates the sacrifice of those who gave their lives in the war and the loss experienced by those who loved them.


The Spirit of Duty appearing before the youth of South Australia, as represented by the girl, the student and the farmer.

Ann, I just posted about the commemoration that will happen Oct. 31 at our Commonwealth War Cemetery in Beersheba for the 95th anniversary of the ANZAC calvary charge. Wish you could come.
