    Default Something for our US Cousins from OZ

    Inspired by Totenheads post,i thought i might show our Memorial.
    This is the War Memorial dedicated to the Servicemen of the United States,here in Brisbane Australia.
    It was the first memorial remembering the United States erected in Australia,it was erected in 1951.
    Located in Newstead Park,(the grounds which surround Newstead House which was occupied by American Forces during the War)
    Lest We Forget.

    The Black and White photo shows Admiral Halsey and Commander Kitchell attending a service at the Memorial in 1954,to commemorate the Battle of the Coral Sea
