What people are saying:

Adelaide National War Memorial, Adelaide National War Memorial, Adelaide is located at the corner of North Terrace and Kintore Ave in Adelaide, between the Governor's House of South Australia and the State Library. The National War Memorial was built in 1931 to commemorate the South Australian soldiers who died in the First World War. She is a monument symbolizing world peace. In the First World War, almost no family in South Australia escaped the death or injury of a loved one. According to incomplete statistics, at that time, nearly 35,000 South Australians were drafted into the army (37.7% of the male population aged 18 to 44, of which 5511 died and 15,000 were injured). These people include Indigenous South Australians, who still volunteer for military service despite discrimination in their country of birth. Australians are still very patriotic. Such monuments can be seen in a local area, not to mention in state capitals. Monuments in small places are to commemorate those who died for the country in this area, which is quite practical.
