This special program pays homage to those Australians who served in World War II - a farewell to the generation now passing into history. Remembrance is powerful storytelling about the lingering human cost of war and how ordinary people face extraordinary challenges. The eight veterans interviewed include former POWs of the Japanese, a chaplain who served in New Guinea and another New Guinea veteran who, like many young men of that generation, put his age up to serve on the frontline as a 16-year-old.
Between July and August, 1916, the small village of Pozieres in northern France became the centre of one of the bloodiest battles of the Great War and the key to the success of the Battle of the Somme.
At midnight on Sunday May 31, 1942, three Japanese midget submarines broke through Sydney Harbour's defences and launched a surprise attack on an ill-prepared city. During that night of confusion and violence, 21 Australian and six Japanese service personnel lost their lives. This program recounts the events of that fateful night.
