This is Kings Parade and the brick building is the Carillon ,built as Memorial to the Great War (WW1) and then other conflicts have been added;next Monday as every Anzac Day two services are held here and the wreaths are laid.There are four carillons in Australia and the Bathurst one has 35 bells.
This is a big hole near Ypres Belgium created by a huge bomb underneath German forces in World War 1.The blast was so big it was even felt in London and was the turning point in the western front campaign.The Bomb was placed underground after much work carried out by Australian Miners.
There was a book and a movie about this called Beneath Hill 60. I visited this area in 2006 because my Grandfather fought and was injured near Ypres.
Thank you to Tom and Jayne who are very generous with their gifts,holidays and their time.Where ever they are they ring me everyday to check on me and to someone who lives alone that is very important.
