It is #1914 and everyone is talking about the War. Large signs have been erected in the streets and enlistment booths have opened all over Melbourne. Recruitment papers are being handed out at Town Hall, and boilermaker, Albert Renshaw, has just enlisted. https://greataustralianstory.com.au/story/mothers-lament-anzac-story

A Mother's Lament - An ANZAC story is drawn from Albert Renshaw's own diary as well as his Company's (the Second Field Company Engineers) War Diary and the family's own account. Written by #MaryRenshaw. #ANZAC
