On the above video entitled 'Australian War Heroes - Lest We Forget', you see the SGT Blaine Diddams Repatriation Ceremony.

SGT Diddams was employed as a Special Air Service Regiment Patrol Commander. He was on his seventh tour to Afghanistan since 2001. SGT Diddams was killed during an engagement with insurgents in Afghanistan on the 2nd of July 2012.

41 Australian soldiers have died in the Afghanistan War.

The sailors marching are HMAS Sydney sailors.  On the 19th November in 1941, HMAS Sydney was lost with all 645 sailors.

At the beginning of the video are Australians marching during WW1 and coming out of their trenches into battle.

The helicopter shot is from the Vietnam War and the soldiers marching at the end are from the same war.

The soldier injured and being helped by a mate comes from WW2.

Many Australian women have served and played major role in our military history and the WW2 images of the women marching makes a statement to this fact.

The flag flying next to the grave was taken in a cemetery by the author of the song.  It was around the time of ANZAC Day

The incredible ANZAC spirit of mateship, courage and sacrifice, can be seen in the images on this video.

Australia has a proud military history and those that serve today in the Australian Defence Force (ADF), continue that proud tradition.


Can you hear Australia's heroes marching?
Can you hear them as they march into eternity?
There will never be a greater love
There just couldn't be a greater sacrifice
There just couldn't be

Can you hear Australia's heroes marching?
The ones who fought and gave their all

Can you hear Australia's heroes marching?
Can you hear them as they march into eternity?
There will never be a greater love
There just couldn't be a greater sacrifice
There just couldn't be

Can you hear Australia's heroes marching?
They're marching once again
Across our great land

Can you hear Australia's heroes marching?
Can you hear them as they march into eternity?
There will never be a greater love
There just couldn't be a greater sacrifice
There just couldn't be

Can you hear Australia's heroes marching?


Over 100,000 Australians have lost their lives in the service and defence of our country. Along with their mates, they're marching once again, in the towns and cities, across our great land.
