In your Friday lead article ("AWM's tick of approval", December 11, p1) the Australian War Memorial's new director welcomed the proposal's approval.

His comments raise the question of what is to be built, after the next 30 years, to honour the 100,000 who will have served in the years 2020 to 2050 and so on, in perpetuity: 2080, 2110, 2140 etc?
