"April 25 is Anzac Day in Australia"

 

A national holiday when more and more people have been taking part in memorial marches and ceremonies.  These are maternal Grandfather Paradox's WWI medals, including the "Old Contemptibles" medal (second from left, awarded to the soldiers who went to France between 5 August and 22 November 1914 with the bar signifying service under enemy fire) and the Croix de Guerre (right).  The oak leaf on the next door Victory Medal indicates a "Mention in Despatches" for gallantry in WWI.  Our man, an army doctor, spent the entire war in and around the trenches in France.
