The republican flag changers claim in the post below that our soldiers never fought under the National Flag. They did.

Once again, we call on the republicans to check the facts. And especially not to impugn the memory and honour of our ...soldiers sailors and airmen.

Here is just one example.

It is from one of the most inspiring and historic events during the Battle of Polygon Wood in the First World War.

It is from one of the most inspiring and historic events during the Battle of Polygon Wood  in the First World War.  It involved  the planting of the Australian Flag on Anzac Redoubt (German Pill-box), at 7.15 a.m., on September 20th, 1917, by Lieutenant A V L Hull, 18th Battalion.   He was killed in action three weeks later.   All Australians should honour him and the Flag under which he served.   Here is a post card commemorating the event  "The Battle of Polygon Wood From Original Drawing by A. Pearse, War Artist."
