ANZAC DAY 2015

Photo opportunities are all over Australia and New Zealand this morning

as we commemorate,

the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landing.

While the major centres receive a majority of media publicity

it is the rural areas which were settled by

returned soldiers from two World Wars

It is these same small towns who may have had their

heart and soul ripped out with the death

of well known identities, sportsman and family members.

This post is in memory of of all the service men and women

who have served our country

and whose home was a small rural centre.

For those service men and women…

Lest We Forget.

    • Yes – yes it was. I was disappointed that the WW I portion of the Australian War Memorial was under renovation when I was in Canberra last. But I’ve had friends tell me stories about places like Hill 60 and the debacle at Suvla Bay.
