AUSTRALIANS  IN  VIETNAM


“Have you forgotten yet? 

Look down and swear, 

By the slain of the War ...  

That you will never forget!”      

                                                                                               
-  Siegfried  Sassoon (on the Western Front, 1917)       
                                                                          

                         

                          “What passing-bells for you who die in herds?

                                  Only the monstrous anger of the guns!

                                Only the stuttering rifles’ rattled words

                                   Can patter out your hasty orisons!” 

                                                                                                     -  Wilfred  Owen (on the Western Front, 1917)
