3D Gallipoli Story - please view this prior to returning to class

Please make a comment or ask a question once you have watched this story.

Below is a song about the experiences of an itinerant Australian who volunteered as a soldier in the First World War, took part in the Suvla Bay landing and lost both legs in the Gallipoli campaign. It was composed and performed by Australian singer Eric Bogle, and was probably recorded in 1980.  

And the band played Waltzing Matilda   Lest We Forget

  • Discuss the use of a symbol of Australian patriotism, the song Waltzing Matilda, as a counterpoint to lyrics about sailing to Gallipoli, burying the dead at Gallipoli, being wounded, landing back in Sydney and questioning the commemoration of war in Anzac Day marches.
