  1. My Gt Uncle – a young Brit, and a sailor who happened to be in Melbourne at the time WW1 broke out, enlisted with the Anzacs and died pointlessly at Gallipoli at the age of 19. There is no doubting the bravery of the young men who fought with him and after him, but there is every reason to doubt the capacity of the leaders who sent them to war in the first place. Wretched, if such events are used to exploit and encourage idealised views among upcoming generations.
