The Shrine of Remembrance was built as a memorial to Victorians who served in World War I. The shrine gave a place for people to grieve and honor the 19,000 Victorians who were killed and buried abroad. Now, the monument is a memorial to all Australians who have served in armed conflicts and peacekeeping missions. This scan starts at the Crypt, which commemorates fighting units in World War I. The statue in the middle of a father and son commemorates the two succeeding generations who fought in World War I and World War II. Continue your tour through the Galleries of Remembrance, which tell individual and unit stories from the 19th century through the present day. Highlights of this area include the Changi flag and the Devanha lifeboat No.5, a Gallipoli landing boat on loan from the collection of the Australian War Memorial.
