Memory and Remembrance

During a short vacation in Sacy-Le-Petit, I was invited into homes of people who I did not know and embraced with open arms and hearts because I am Australian. Many Australian soldiers fought and lost their lives for France.
This work is for those who are still remembered and still admired for their bravery, so very very far away from home.

May they rest in peace.
