On a cold Townsville day we stood at the waterfront to commemorate Vietnam Veterans’ Day.
We paused to remember on the date of the Battle of Long Tan.
Joseph was impressed by Grandad’s money.
“One, two, three, four, eight! Eight money!”
That’s a lot of money…
Lest we forget.

I know you and your family will never forget.
Spending the short time of the service together – and then heading off for dinner – was a great way to spend what is an often stressful afternoon. Thanks Suse for organising us all. It was good.
I’m impressed with Grandad’s ‘money’ too.
That IS impressive money. Well done, Grandad.
My cheers are with Grandad too! The men in my family managed to escape this one … thank God! The preceding generations were not so lucky.
That is indeed a great deal of money – and yet not enough to repay the people who went for their efforts.
(It is cold isn’t it?)
Thank you Grandad. He did well.
My father-in-law has “money” from that war too. It came at much too high a price for all.
We will never forget.
