Many of our men went off to fight in both world wars, I have often wondered why. These men were Indigenous to this land. They were not recognized as citizens of Australia. Had no right to vote, yet served and died for a nation, one that had been stolen from them. Those who did return, returned to a world of degradation. Lest We Forget.
