QUEENSLAND WAR MEMORIALS
BY SHIRLEY AND TREVOR McIVOR
Dedicated to Lt
George Edward Jamieson, MC, Butler Medal,
original ANZAC, 9th Battalion, AIF.
War memorials do not praise war,
they honour people
Possibly you or members of your family!
This CD-ROM is our personal endeavour to record visually the hundreds of tributes to young men and women who, in times of conflict, left their Queensland homes or came from interstate or overseas to train and serve in Queensland. From large war memorials, the centre of remembrance each Anzac Day, to many personal and group tributes, each population centre has recorded its everlasting gratitude to those of you who served from or in their district and combined to ensure our priceless freedom.
As the Battle of the Coral Sea memorial on The Strand, Townsville, states:- "It was our desire to leave a lasting memorial for future generations who may need to be reminded that freedom is often bought at a terrible cost."
That cost was paid by you if you are a veteran, and it is greatly appreciated.
The CD-ROM contains 4,763 colour/sepia photographs from 360 Queensland centres, plus 414 pages of text, an Art Gallery of 41 photos, 33 recorded verses/inscriptions, slide show, and music.
Photos may be viewed in alphabetical order of centres, or click on the map and see tributes/themes in regions. To enable you to browse quickly, the photographs are also coded into 125 themes. Text can be printed/saved from the CD-ROM, which is Windows/Macintosh compatible.
