Vale Sergeant Brett Wood

Today Sydney stopped for the funeral of Australian commando Sgt Brett Wood who was killed by a roadside bomb last month in Afghanistan. Due to operational requirements and at the request of the Australian Defense Force the faces of his fellow commandos are obscured. 

I know I missed a couple of weekly photo posts however as it was the last few weeks of the university semester I had very little time to shoot let alone update the blog. The weekly updates will start again on Sunday however I found the funeral of an Australian Soldier too important to wait for the weekend to post.
