Thanks Nick, that is a really interesting perspective on the new galleries. I haven't been to see them, and I will be disappointed if battles like Fromelles, Pozieres, Mouquet Farm and Bullecourt aren't covered well. Cheers, Peacemaker67 (crack... thump) 14:21, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

There has been criticism of creeping mawkishness and sentimentality at the War Memorial ever since Brendan Nelson took over. Hawkeye7 (talk) 20:55, 23 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes, it does seem to be a trend. Projecting names from the roll of honour on the side of the building at night is particularly mawkish in my view - did no-one think about the "name in lights" aspect of this? Nick-D (talk) 22:32, 23 January 2015 (UTC)
