Join us at week's close to honour those who have served and sacrificed so that we may enjoy our lives of relative peace, comfort and freedom.

Each Sunday we pause to remember a different event from Australia's military history. We remember the men and women who took part in those events, and the lives lost or forever changed. 

Today we remember the 7th Division's victory at Shaggy Ridge in New Guinea. After several weeks of attacks on Japanese positions along the ridge, the Australians succeeded in pushing the enemy off Shaggy Ridge in late January 1944. Taking this key position meant the Australians could then drive the Japanese towards the New Guinea coast and take the Huon Peninsula.
