They are literally the pride of the Australian War Memorial; the two stone lions guarding the entrance to the structure once stood on each side of the Menin Gate in the city of Ypres in Belgium. During World War I hundreds of thousands of Australian soldiers passed between them on their way to some of the bloodiest battles of a terrible conflict in 1917. 6,169 of the more than 13,500 who never returned disappeared without a trace. Their bodies disappeared without a trace, either blown to smithereens or sucked down in to the mud of Flanders. The lions, the last semblance of civilisation they ever saw, are now on their way back to Belgium for a short stay.
