This is a poster design I did for ANZAC Day, dedicated to my Grandpa.

Anzac Day is a national day of rememberance in Australia and New Zealand to commemorate and honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in World War I. It now broadly commemorated all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.

Grandpa was called up for service in the army as an electrician in 1941 when Japan commenced the war in the pacific. He was stationed in army workshops in Newcastle and Sydney and then was transferred to watercraft workshops. His unit was moved to Cairns in Queensland where they stayed for 2 years, then the unit moved overseas to a base on Moritai Island, then to North Borneo and finally stationed on Labian Island where he remained until the war ceased. 

This poster features photos of my Grandpa and a Women's Weekly paper clipping of him protecting his country as seen below. I couldn't be more proud!
