About the Book
Australia Remembers 2: Customs and Traditions of the Australian Defence Force
Every year Australians gather on Anzac Day and Remembrance Day at services, parades and military events across Australia. We witness rituals that generate questions. Why do we wear poppies? Why do some soldiers wear kilts? Why do planes fly overhead?
Australia Remembers: Customs and Traditions of the Australian Defence Force provides a detailed explanation of the origins of the many colourful customs and traditions visible on these important occasions. It explores the symbolism and the significance of such rituals in the lives of those Australians who have fought for their country and those who keep us safe today. Described in language that is easily accessible to younger readers, the history behind what is visible on commemorative occasions is explored, while delving into the unusual and those not always seen – mottoes, mascots and music.
