White Night Geelong 2018
The light show last night was for the 1918 World War I Armistice centenary in a couple of weeks. It started with a display for every year of the Twentieth Century up to 1914. We were bemused and thought perhaps we were going to sit through a display for every year up to the present. But in 1914 the story of World War I began and it started to make sense.
web for exact stats) that our nation of less than 5 million had 416,809 men enlist, over 60,000 deaths and 156,000 wounded, gassed or taken prisoner!
And then we headed back to the car. My parents were not aware of the buses but my brother at the Waurn Ponds cinema last night said there was a huge queue there for buses to White Night. The organisers were very lucky with the weather and I am sure it will be considered a great success.
