This video was about indigenous Australians fighting in world war 1 and how people now respect the great things they did.

In world war 1 if you were Aboriginal and you wanted to fight you had to have had special permission to leave your home.

Indigenous Australians have fought in every single war that Australia has ever been involved in.

Did you know that most people think that up to 800 indigenous men signed up for world war 1,and for world war 2 thousands signed up to fight?

Why was it that if you were Aboriginal you needed special permission to leave your home?

Why were the people buried in Belgium, not in Australia?

I can tell from watching this video that without the help of these people there is a possibility that Australia would be a lot different from what it is now.
