Lest We Forget. Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that broadly commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders “who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations” and “the contribution and suffering of all those who have served”.
This year I headed over to my local Wangi Wangi on Lake Macquaire for Anzac Day as it hosted its annual parade along Dobell Drive to the RSL. While it wasn’t as big as previous years due to restrictions, it was so good to be able to get out there and be a part of it.
There are lots of photos, but worth a scroll through them all. Feel free to tag and share when you see someone you know, and if you would like a copy of any particular photo, just send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org), Melissa 🙂
They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.
