Purpose: Describe a moment in time for the soldiers.
WALT : Describe what and how the ANZAC soldiers would have:
1- Seen, 2- Felt, 3-Heard, 4- Smelt onboard the ship as they waved
goodbye to their loved ones on their way to WAR!
As I sat on the edge of the large, hard steel ship with my legs dangling limply over board I could see……. My lovely children waving and my stunning wife sobbing.
I felt frustrated. I didn't want to go to war. I didn’t want to be separated from my family.
I could hear soldiers beside me sobbing. I could hear wives screaming.
I was thinking that this might be my last time seeing my loving family and my homeland, New Zealand.
