Detailed description

This article, ‘Tree from the Battlefront’ features a true story about some seeds collected by an Australian soldier in Gallipoli in World War I. One of the seeds grew into a pine tree that stands at the Australian War Memorial in Canberra as a living symbol to commemorate those who lost their lives there. This is a great resource for broadening students’ historical awareness and could be a useful prompt for further study or discussion of World War I and other national and international war memorials.
