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 kids waving and my wife weeping and waving me good-bye. I felt my heart pounding inside my chest and sweat dripping off my forehead.

I heard my kids blurting out good-bye and every wife down there crying.

I smelt boat fumes coming from the engine and perfume on my uniform from my wife.

I was thinking how dare they do this to me and my family. I may never see them again.
