World War One. War heroes song.

The First Australian Imperial Force (1st AIF) was the main expeditionary force of the Australian Army during World War One. It was formed from August 15, 1914, following Britain's declaration of war on Germany. Known at the time as the AIF, it is today referred to as the 1st AIF to distinguish from the 2nd AIF which was raised during World War II. The 1st AIF included the Australian Flying Corps, which was later renamed the Royal Australian Air Force. More on this story at the LINK: Youtube

The song on this video is timeless and honours the memory of those who have died in the service and defence of Australia in war. The song is inspiring and stirring.
