The Lost Diggers

Watched the article on the television show '60 Minutes', about the amazing photographs of soldiers from World War One, found in a disused French barn. What an unbelievable find. I sat there with tears in my eyes and a lump in my throat. I hope that the Federal Government acts to preserve this part of Australian history.

You can view the photo's via Facebook by logging in and searching for 'Lost Diggers' or by going to http://au.tv.yahoo.com/sunday-night/

I think everyone will find at least one family member who served in the forces during WW1. Not all of the photographs are of Australian's, there appear to be soldiers from around the globe.

I have sent an email to Julia Gillard to ask that she release funding to help preserve this wonderful find. Please send an email to her as well. The following is the PM's website -  http://www.pm.gov.au/contact-your-pm
