Albert Chowne VC ,MM didn’t make it back, he still lies in a foreign land. His and others sacrifice deserve to be honored and remembered. 


Australia’s largest memorial, Remembrance Driveway, extends from Sydney to Canberra. It comprises of extensive parks, plantations and road side rest areas. The Driveway is dedicated to all who served in WW2, Korea, Vietnam and the present. The roadside rest stops being reserved for VC recipients. Some still react against memorials as a celebration of conflict, I argue the opposite. 


To shape a peaceful future, uniting all cultures all nations we must never forget, we must always remember the past.
