ANZAC Day

It is a very special day in Australia today.  Not only is it ANZAC Day but it is 100 years since the landing of Gallipoli .  It is theAust Flag day we commemorate our fallen service personnel, especially those from Gallipoli & the Western Front.

While reading this I will be out catching up with old mates & hearing stories from the old diggers (which I love).  Mind you, they are more than interested in any of the younger generation who have served our country too.  It is a very humbling experience & brings goose bumps to my body, especially during the Dawn Service.  This year I am heading into the “big smoke” (city) for the service.

To find out why ANZAC is so special to us – please follow the link below as it really gives a great explanation –

THANK YOU to all those ex-service & servicing men & women, especially those that fought for our country & to those who gave their life so that we may have the freedom we have today.

“We will remember them”

    • It is my pleasure Debie. It is a very special day in Oz, much like your Remembrance Day! We were all out in force this year being the 100 years. Service personnel do a fantastic job world wide!
