Happy (?) ANZAC dayApril 25, 2012
Pic from War of Gallipoli tour
Today is the day in Australia where we remember the courage and sacrifice of our troops in war. Thanks to them we live the wonderful lives we do today, where we can say what we like, eat what we like, make blogs about skulls….
The skull above is held in the Kebatepe war museum in Turkey and is that of a Turkish troop who fought with Australians in the Battle of Gallipoli. The location of the bullet hole looks to be in the frontal bone just forward of the coronal suture where it meets the parietal bone. It is a sombre reminder of the horrors that our troops went through in those days of battle.
Lest we forget.
