Re: Memorial Day, The World Over
When the Prince of Wales and the Repulse were sunk by the Japanese, Australia was at it's most vulnerable. Our service men had been fighting the German and Italian military across the world for years. Winston Churchill refused to send them home and was prepared for Australia to be occupied until years later.
The situation was dire. But when our Prime Minister asked the US for help a new and powerful alliance was forged. This has lasted and remains as strong today as ever. From that time on, for better or worse, Australia has supported the US whenever needed.
Your loss is our loss. My respects.
