Donald Trump & Australia — Lets Not Forget That Australia Was Also An Ally In WW I.

by Anura Guruge


Over the last 2 days I have kept on hearing that Australia has fought alongside the U.S. in every war in since WW II.

Well, that OMITS the HUGE involvement of Australia in WW I — albeit fighting as part of the ‘British Empire‘. Nonetheless, it was Australians who fought and died.

Over 420,000 Australians served in the military during WW I
and over 60,000 DIED.

I give you this haunting song which is about the sacrifice of an Australian soldier in WW I in Gallipoli.
