Yesterday afternoon I went back to Monument Hill in Fremantle partly because the sun was golden and I wanted to see the view from the hill in this light, partly because I was wondering about the preparations for Anzac Day and also to see how visible the American warship USS Carl Vinson would be from this prime location.
I had been at the memorial in the morning when it was very quiet. But now it was a hive of activity as preparations were finalised for Anzac Day. I also noticed these beautiful flowers that had been placed on the memorial dedicated to the World War 11 Royal Australian Navy Corvettes. It was whilst taking some photos that I meet the wonderful couple who had placed the flowers at the base of the memorial. He had served in the Corvettes in World War 11 and shared some stories of his experiences. I do not now their names but I am honoured to have meet them both.
Lest we forget
The USS Carl Vinson is in the distance framed by the cranes at Fremantle port.
