August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of the First World War (1914 - 1918). Across the globe, the war's centenary will be marked by millions of people, in places of special importance and in ways that are personally meaningful to them.
Across Victoria, local communities will be able to plan their own memorials and to share in the stories of those who served, through the Victorian Government's ANZAC Centenary web site.
