Anzac Day - Lest We Forget
Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) Day. A day of commemoration, with marches in towns and cities throughout Australia and New Zealand.
Link to my four previous Anzac Day posts.
I don't usually go to a march or service, but this year found myself in Sydney as the march came to Hyde Park. Hre's a few snaps I took. The horse in the top left commemorates the Boer War weterans. World War One is commemorated by the flags of the units....there are no living participants left to march.
World War One interests me most, as my grandfather was at Gallipoli and the Western Front. Here's my blog about him: Percy Smith, ANZAC.
On Anzac Day, 2005 I attended the commemorations at Villers-Bretonneux and Bullecourt (pictured) in France, where services and marches are held every year.
