My Son Goes to War 


183 x 122 


My son is leaving Australia and going to war today. Because the army he is part of is going to fight at Gallipoli. We come to an old pier to say goodbye to my son. Like us, many people gathered here to say goodbye to their families and friends. Many, many military men are getting on a huge ship. 

My son looks enthusiastic. I know he loves his country very much, and is very loyal to his homeland of Australia. All warriors here have the same courage and confidence as my son. They are the country’s heroes. They are the glory of Australia.
