The incredible expanding War Memorial

By johnboy 16 March 2005 35

ABC Online is reporting on plans to triple the display space at the War Memorial.

I guess they’d better enjoy the good times (a cashed up tory government trying to associate itself with military glories) while they last.

But I do have to admit that I was showing a guest around last weekend, and the things that bothered me in the last expansion have been mostly addressed.

What’s Your opinion?

She looks younger than I expected. Does she really have dentures? Support your claim : P

(ew)

It must be a bugger, then, when the mobile coffee service drives past and belts our La Cucaracha

Mr Evil 4:03 pm 16 Jan 08

No, cars driving past and tooting help me keep time!

Ari 3:42 pm 16 Jan 08

Do you click the dentures together like maracas to keep time?

Mr Evil 3:12 pm 16 Jan 08

No, just assisting with the action! 🙂

Ari 3:00 pm 16 Jan 08

Holding her wig on?

Mr Evil 3:00 pm 16 Jan 08

No silly; the other hand is resting on the back of her head.

Ari 2:57 pm 16 Jan 08

… and with the other hand waving at the passing traffic on Limestone Avenue.

Mr Evil 2:56 pm 16 Jan 08

Oh dear. I hate having to stand there with a pair of dentures in my hands while my pipe’s being cleaned! 🙂

Ari 2:53 pm 16 Jan 08

… with her dentures out.

Mr Evil 2:46 pm 16 Jan 08

Yeah, but the word is she gives good head!

Perhaps she was my competition – just call me Dan Bigalow – Gunghalin gigalo.

I actually discovered Riotact through a link I was sent from a friend who works at a campbell national security department a few years ago (circa 2004ish?) It was a link to a RA contributers article and the dealings they had with LL. I shant point the finger at who as I can not remember – however – that is how I came about knowing and loving RA. Everyone knows that LL was a popular talking point/point of ridicule amongst employees in the vicinity of russell duntroon and campbell.

Perhaps Danman IS Limestone Lizzy.

Mælinar 2:19 pm 16 Jan 08

I second the nomination that Danman writes a story about how he found out about RA by searching for Limestone Lizzie and the motives behind it…

Yes it is a V2 – a bit rusty and falling to bits, but there’s a very good condition one inside. In fact there are boat-loads of amazing stuff inside the two huge halls they have there at Mitchell. Tanks, planes, choppers, artillery, entire wall racks of ammo, in fact it all leaves the actual AWM displays for dead…

I can heartily recommend a visit next time the AWM has a “Big Things” open day there (once per year I think).
