Eric Bogle - The Band Played Waltzing Matilda

Someone's compilation- note that when embedding this software ends up taking the comments made on Youtube and slapping them in here -and I am in no way claiming anything but posting the embed code here.

Edited later: I posted the video because of the song; the references in the song are very Australian-centric, and although it appears as the person that compiled the video was Canadian (not that there is anything wrong with that, of course- but ... a good deal of the references - like 'Marching in Parade every April' -that specifically refers to ANZAC Day (25th April), and there are parades in -all towns and cities no matter the size, and almost always centered upon the towns' memorial. Memorials in Australia (I can't speak to NZ as I have never had the good fortune to have paid them a visit) have been a central part of many communities of all sizes (to the smallest incorporated area - just like Civil War memorials are to the US (north and south alike). It is a big deal here in Australia - like a very solemn Memorial Day.

At some point I will have to compile the photos of war memorials here... well it is on the list at any point.
