The War Memorial is letting us know they’ve put on a show for a breakout group of the Oprah Winfrey jamboree currently enthralling the brain dead:
A group of visitors from Oprah’s Ultimate Aussie Adventure visited the Australian War Memorial today Sunday 12 December.
On arrival at Canberra International Airport this morning, the group was welcomed by Dr Karl James (the Memorial’s Second World War Historian) who took the opportunity of the short coach trip to ANZAC Parade, to provide a history of the Memorial including the Australian American alliance.
His Excellency the American Ambassador Jeffrey Bleich and Mrs Rebecca Bleich joined the visitors in the Commemorative Area to lay a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and pay their respects at the Roll of Honour Afghanistan panel.
Dr Karl James then escorted the group through the Second World War and Post 45 Conflicts galleries before taking them to ANZAC Hall to experience the G for George Lancaster Bomber Striking By Night (sound and light show).
That’s your 15 minutes Canberra.
