Australian War Memorial and Museum - Canberra, Australia

I am currently in Canberra and got a chance after my business meetings to visit the War Museum and Memorial. Very nice museum and again I wil post pictures soon. One note. If you get a chance look up on you tube Peter Jacksons short film called crossing the trenches or crossing the line. I forgot which. Anyway, the BEST WWI aerial combat movie I have ever seen. Wow.  Here are some of the pictures from the War Museum.  If you are ever in Canberra it is well worth the trip.  Take the free tour because there is so much to see and great tidbits of information and stories from the Guides there.
