On 11 November 1918, the guns of the Western Front fell silent after four years of continuous warfare. Remembrance Day is an occasion to commemorate and remember all Australians who have died as a result of war.
An app called Anzac 360 uses virtual reality technology, stunning 360-degree drone footage, and interactive videos to take you to the heart of the Australian experience on the Western Front. Eight key sites and battles are explained, highlighting the challenges our troops faced some 100 years ago, from the tactical decisions that had to be made to moments of extraordinary bravery that resulted in a Victoria Cross.
This app can be accessed simply by using your phone or tablet — it’s free, simple and stunning and can be viewed at home or in the classroom. What better way for everyone, especially students, to understand appreciate the sacrifices made.
Lest We Forget.
