Anzac story behind an image of joy ... Australians today thrilled as Prince Harry was reunited with war widow Daphne Dunne, 98, and introduced his bride Meghan. The former WW2 Australian Women's Army Service corporal first caught the prince's attention in 2015 when he spotted a Victoria Cross pinned to her lapel. It belonged to her husband Albert Chowne, who earned the medal as a young lieutenant in March 1945 in New Guinea. Seeing enemy machine gunners about to massacre our men he charged them, hurling grenades and firing from the hip. Despite being hit twice in the torso he took out the position and carried on, killing two more Japanese before succumbing to his wounds. After the war Daphne wed Corporal John Dunne, who had been a PoW in Changi. These pictures show Daphne with Albert on their wedding day - and with the prince in 2015, 2017 and today. #AnzacLive #ThanksForServing ... See MoreSee Less

Lest We ForgetJohn "JJ" Wade died over the last weekend.
A veteran of Tobruk and El Alamein, John served in an anti-tank gun crew taking on the German Panzers in the famed Australian 9th Division.
He was featured last year as part of the Memorial's series on El Alamein veterans.
He had this to say about the battle:
“When the big push came on there, the guns started at 10 o’clock at night, and they all went bang,” Wade said. “That’s a lot of guns, and a lot of noise, I can tell you … You didn’t have time to get frightened. You just did what you had to do automatically.”
