ANZAC (Australian & New Zealand Army Corps) Day is the day we in Australia and New Zealand remember those who who fought and have fallen in times of war. On April 25th, 1915, we had our first major war time battle on the shores of Gallipoli in Turkey.

"There's is a legend not of sweeping military victories so much as triumphs against the odds, of courage and ingenuity in adversity. It is a legend of free and independent spirits whose discipline derived less from military formalities and customs than from the bonds of mateship and the demands of necessity."
Former Prime Minister of Australia, the Hon Mr Paul Keating, at the Entombment of the Unknown Soldier at the Australian War Memorial, 1993

Today I honoured my father, uncles, father in law and husband who also served. Thank you.
