Purpose: Describe a moment in time for the soldiers.

WALT : Describe what and how the ANZAC soldiers would have:
1- Seen, 2- Felt, 3-Heard, 4- Smelt onboard the ship as they waved    
                     goodbye to their loved ones on their way to WAR!







As I sat on the edge of the large, hard steel ship with my legs dangling limply over board I could see…….  My children waving and my wife crying.

I felt empty. This could be the last time seeing my family.

I could hear… my wife screaming and the engine starting.

I could smell… my loving wife’s perfume when I gave her my last hug.

I was thinking…  about my kids and my beautiful wife. Why  was I going to war. I love my family so much…
