Sir, give me a single battalion of the Royal Carabineers and I will drive these upstarts into the sea.
Under spreading ensigns moving nigh, in slow But firm battalion.john milton
We do not know this Australian's name and we never will. We do not know his rank or battalion. We do not know where he was born, nor precisely how he died ... We will never know who this Australian was ... he was one of the 45,000 Australians who died on the Western Front ... one of the 60,000 Australians who died on foreign soil. One of the 100,000 Australians who died in wars this century. He is all of them. And he is one of us.paul keating
