Friends, I had hoped we would complete this project for ANZAC Day, but perhaps this is best. Memorializing these men, women, and donkeys should take place over more than a single day.

Lest we forget.
It was a very different ANZAC day here this year, because of the lockdown restrictions. Normally there is a large parade in the city centers, in the case of Melbourne, for example, marching to the ANZAC memorial building, and many small parades and ceremonies across the states in suburbs and country towns.
Instead, this year people found innovative ways to commemorate our soliders from their their driveways, with lit candles and in memory of those who fell and those who served. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0fxDgYn4Ehk

The errors are now OK as is the volume. BUT you absolutely mangled the filename! You reversed 128kb to kb128 and inserted a comma then mp3. On this occasion, I have fixed it for you and reuploaded, and marked as now PL OK.
But could you please keep a very close eye on your file names in future to ensure they are correct? Dreadful things happen when they aren't. It is a good habit to get into to check the filename when you post it to advise it has been uploaded - I spotted the comma immediately, and then the rest.

Section 60 - Mr Aeroplane

1:50

I hope I got the verses in the right order :mrgreen:
Nicely done - and good reading, but there's a couple of blips. Especially with poetry, it's important to read word for word (whereas in prose, provided there's no change to meaning, the odd substituted word or word order can be overlooked)
Just these 2 please:

~0.37 Who's fighting here... (not We're fighting....)
~ 1.00 to make a hit (not bit)

I would pronounce it as the two letters 'M' then 'D' followed by Mac. (Haha! We'll pretend the man's name is Michael David McDonald.)

Lovely readings!

9 is PL OK!

10 has a bit of repeat at 1:33.5. (1:33.5. Is that how we write it?)
