ANZAC & Wartime Incursion



This morning we were lucky enough to have a visit from Mr Bird, a retired Army veteran. Mr Bird is a second generation soldier who served our country for over 15 years and who's father fought in Vietnam. 

Medals
Over his years of service Mr Bird received many medals/badges of honor. Photographed above are also some of his fathers medals and other medals he has collected over the years. All up Mr Bird has over 2000 medals in his collection. 

Dwayne & Nash (from 1/2F)


Mr bird bought along some dehydrated food, and cooking utensils, similar to the ones he used while serving in the Army. Dwayne and Nash are pretending to light a stove. The "stove" would stand over some coal from a fire and the flat element would heat up the food placed in a pot on top. The pot is the shallow rectangular dish in the bottom right hand corner.

Jett
Here Isaac and Jett are testing out some of the gear Mr Bird carried while on tour. When filled, this small pack weights between 5 - 10 kilograms!


Thank you so much Mr Bird for coming in and sharing with us and thank you for your service.
