Anzac Day

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, originally commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in the Ottoman Empire during World War I.

RSL unhappy with AFL over Anzac Day time clash
Latest: Brumbies left frustrated over Anzac Day scheduling
The AFL have gone to far this time planning the Anzac Day game the same time there marching respect
Still think Brumby jack was drunk on Anzac day? No way. It was just "someone get a gun!"
Hopefully the does not play an ANZAC Day game at 11am. Day should be about the diggers especially the 100th anniversary.
just about Saints wanting to play in NZ at 1pm ANZAC day. Carry on from Robbo is pathetic.
.I take it you advocate the AFL cancel all Ess v Coll ANZAC fixtures forthwith - after all, it's not ANZAC Half Day
The AFL wouldn't schedule games at 11am ANZAC Day if they didn't think the public would watch
But AFL players r world famous heros that risk their lives weekly playing the toughest game on the planet ANZAC day is 4 them
Why doesn't the NZ ANZAC day game get scheduled as a night match in NZ?
Thomas Kinkade Collectibles from The Bradford Exchange Online
RSL is right. It's appalling AFL will play game at 11am Anzac Day in NZ while march going here. In 2015 of all years. Very disrespectful!
Victoria's RSL boss shocked at AFL’s plan to schedule 11am Anzac Day clash while war veterans are still marching:
yeah but they're all going to that Anzac Day thing
.Yeah, bloody NZers... like, where were they at Gallipoli? Now spoiling our 'Melbourne ANZAC day'.

Preview: Roosters v Dragons Allianz Stadium Saturday 7.30 pm It's the question that has plagued mankind since Paul McGregor had hair. If Captain America and Iron Man traded fighting super-powered Nazi soldiers and megalomaniac invaders from outer space for the intricacies of the 13-man code – obstruction rule, halftime oranges, Tommy Raudonikis and all – who would win? Super hero bragging rights and two pretty vital competition points go on the line as Anthony Minichiello defies that strong Italian heritage to lead the Roosters – resplendent in their Captain America get-up – into battle against the iron-clad Iron Men of St George Illawarra for a Round 21 clash with a novel twist. Both sides will be donning ISC Marvel-themed jumpers come Saturday night, and a spot of Hollywood-style revenge should be on the Dragons' tip sheet given the pantsing the Roosters pulled on them back on Anzac Day – a 34-14 drubbing that started the defensive rot that worryingly had them conceding just under 26 points a ...

Dear Members Just a quick reminder that there IS training on this weekend and Monday across ALL 4 training centres despite the local holiday in some regions. Next weekend however we will be CLOSED for the entire weekend due to the nationally gazetted "Queens Birthday Public Holiday" long weekend. Training will then resume again as of Saturday 14th June at Kawana & Kedron and then at each centre thereafter as usual. We DO NOT close centres, as a rule, for the 'local show day' holidays as this is too difficult to manage across the regions. We DO close centres, as a rule, for nationally gazetted public holidays: Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day, Australia Day, Good Friday, Easter Monday, Anzac Day, Queens Birthday & Labour Day, where it affects the weekend on which the centres operate. This year we opened centres the day after Anzac Day despite it being like a 'Long Weekend' simply due to the Easter School holiday period this year and how it fell. Of course we will always announce this in classes in ...
exactly. And Chapman on Anzac Day. Young jumped off the ground and hit him in the head..
'Lest We Forget' this is the slogan for Anzac Day. Yet the wars continue and more of our young people die for causes usually linked to certain nations taking advantage of other nations resources. Sure the elete say its all for freedom, but at a price. NUP I say phuq war and worshipping it. I LIVE FOR PEACE.
“When the wheels hit the gravel road and if feels like home”, that line resonates with me and every single time I drive over the grate into the family farm that song plays in my head. About20 klms south west from Jindabyne, NSW the bitumen turns to gravel, drive a further 7 klms along a steep winding road you will find the farm.  If you look out as you drive down the gap, you can see why the region is called the high country, as on a clear day you could almost see Melbourne, hundreds of klms away, but I don’t suggest you take the eyes off the road as you will find yourself down a 90 degree drop driving towards a great white light and a welcome from St Peter. At18 I joined the Army Reserve, and then at 21 I married a Navy man. Anzac Day tome is more special than any day of the year.  So when I hear Lee Kernaghan state that the people he respects most in our country are soldiers and farmers you can clearly see why in my head he is talking about me, to me. I am about to go to a Lee Kernaghan concert, ...
Vision: SGT Ray Vance in Afghanistan On 25 April 2014 Australian, New Zealand, Turkish and other Coalition military members currently deployed in Kabul, Afghanistan gathered together at dawn to pause and reflect on Anzac Day. A moving Dawn Service was conducted at the Kabul International Airport-North military base involving an Australian and New Zealand combined catafalque party and incorporating senior military representation from Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, United Kingdom, France and United States. Major General David Coghlan, AM, provided a key note address as the Senior Australian Defence Force Officer which highlighted the importance of also reflecting on those that had fallen whilst serving in the Middle East Area of Operations. Following the service, members enjoyed a combined breakfast and a friendly game of touch football between nations.

What an incredible couple of weeks with Bluesfest Byron Bay, school holidays and the Anzac Day long weekend. Thank you to all of you pizzaholics who came and saw us. Thanks for your patience when you saw just how busy we were and especially to those of you who were affected last Wednesday when one of our pizza ovens decided it didn't want to work any more. Right in the middle of service!! Now the queues have gone and lots of locals are popping up with a big week so far with birthdays. The Byron Bay Ocean Swim Classic is the next event and already those bookings are coming in for those who want their carbs before the event. Remember, we recommend that you book early, come early or call early to miss the rush.
Hello lovely ladies, Have you enjoyed your 2 long weekends catching up with all your friends and family? I know, I did!

Winter has really arrived at Shoes on Chevron and honestly - there is so much gorgeous stock for you to choose from. Believe me when I say get in now because sizes are going very quickly.

Greedy *** .. Make an example of these *** they purposely hid the fish so they knew the rules. - Snapper stash could lead to charges Three Auckland fishermen could be in deep water after fisheries officers found more than 200 snapper stashed under their boat's floorboards. A Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI) spokesman said the three men - aged 33, 38 and 39 - could face serious charges. The large stash of snapper was found during a routine inspection of fishing boats at Kawakawa Bay, southeast of Auckland, on Anzac Day. Of the 234 snapper found on board, 114 were under size. Compliance officers seized the men's boat, trailer and car. MPI North Harbour district compliance manager Michael Simmons said the fisheries officers did a great job to find the fish. "The blatant disregard for both the size and quantity of illegal fish taken by these fishermen places a huge strain on the survival of the snapper fishery." Fisheries officers also caught four shellfish gatherers with 1016 cockles at Kawakawa ...
AUD/USD Weekly Fundamental Analysis April 28 – May 2, 2014 Forecast The AUD/USD dipped this week as troubles brewing in China weighed on the currency. The Aussie ended the week at 0.9283 after touching a weekly of 0.9377 before Chinese data was released. The calendar has been kind to Aussie workers this year, with the Easter and Anzac Day long weekends falling within a 10-day period. For many, the prospect of having 10 days off for the price of three was too tempting. Many Aussie workers are taking Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday as annual leave this week and getting themselves a great holiday deal. And why wouldn’t you, with the weather so enticing? There are good things in store for those hardworking individuals who are keeping the economy going too. The roads are empty and you can get a seat on the trains. The car park at the Easter show is full though. On Friday, the Australian dollar was trading at 92.62 US cents, down from 92.95 on Thursday. On Wednesday, the Aussie initially fell half a US cen ...
What Future for Generations Y & Z Each year I have the privilege of being invited to speak at the closing ceremony of the United Nations Youth Declaration. It is an audience of around 200 secondary and tertiary students who gather for four days to discuss and debate social, economic and political issues. At the end they produce a summary of their deliberations, the Youth Declaration. Each year it is a fantastic group – committed, energised and passionate about making a difference in the world. I come away from it every time feeling I have gained more than I have given. This year, the introductory quote setting the theme for the conference was from Anne Frank: “How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world”. The audience is diverse and multicultural and committed to making New Zealand a better place for all who live in it. It gives me enormous confidence that our future is in good hands! I spoke the day after Anzac Day, acknowledging our debt to th ...

In separate incidents last night, police charged two men and two women with mid range PCA, all four with children in their vehicles. Operation ‘Go Slow,’ which started at 12.01am Thursday 24 April 2014 and continues until 11.59pm today (Sunday 27 April 2014), includes double demerits for speeding, seatbelt, and motorcycle-helmet offences. Officers will be a highly-visible presence on the roads as part of a two-week traffic blitz encompassing Easter, Anzac Day and the school holidays – where drivers are being urged to ‘make their trip count’ to ensure they don’t become a statistic. About 5.10pm (Saturday 26 April 2014), officers from Blacktown Traffic and Highway Patrol Command stopped a Holden Captiva for RBT on Sackville Street, Blacktown. The driver, a 33-year-old man was breath tested and returned a positive result. There were five passengers in the car a woman and four children under the age of nine. Three of the children were unrestrained. The man was arrested and taken to Blacktown Polic ...

I went to circo loco yesterday for Anzac Day
Over the years I have been lucky enough to sing as part of the Anzac Day memorial service at Saint Mary's Cathedral in Sydney. Every year i was privileged to sing with the Navy, Army and Air Force bands. I also met some very interesting people, including soldiers past and present. The one who stands out the most is Norm, a 93 year old man who served Australia during WWII. For someone who had seen so much horror, he was one of the kindest men I've met. Every year, since I moved away from Australia, I think of Norm on Anzac Day and am glad I had the chance to thank him for his service to out country. To all those, past and present, who give up their freedom so we may have ours, thank you. "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. Lest We Forget"
I trust you all had a lovely Easter break. We welcomed five new children into school this week, Izzy, Toby, Joshua, Sophia and Hugo. They seem to have settled well into their new classes. Mrs Carpenter also started work here as a Teaching Assistant, whilst Mrs Baker is on maternity leave. No news yet on the baby. On a wet Friday morning, Wylye Valley School, walked up to St Marys Church for our annual Anzac Day service. What a treat to be greeted by a real Kiwi, Bill, dressed in his military costume. The children read out the Anzac alphabet and sang ‘Make Me a Channel of Your Peace’ and ‘We Will Remember.’ Bill and his family joined us in church. Holly read out a WW1 poem before we went out to the Anzac graves, where every child observed a one minute silence and placed rosemary on the grave as a symbol of remembrance. Bill applauded the children as they walked back down the lane to school. Our topic this term is ‘Take one Village’ and on Tuesday, Laurel from Swindon and Wiltshire History Centr ...
THE 26TH OF APRIL The 26th of April, is a day remembered here in the Pa o nga Ariki, when in 1940 the heart of Te Urumanao Ratana stopped and her spirit returned to Heaven. It follows Anzac Day, when the Nation remembers the fallen soldiers. It’s the day we remember a mother ‘Te Whaea o te Kaota.’ The name she was given by the Holy Spirit. Te Urumanao came from the south Taranaki tribe of Ngarauru in the Patea region and also Pakeha decent. She belong to the Ngapaki family or Baker family, and her father was a minister in the Methodist Church, so she was familiar with the teachings of the church and had a keen interest in the Bible. As a young woman, she was to marry Tahupotiki Wiremu Ratana, and after their marriage moved to the Ratana family homestead known as Orakeinui. There at Orakeinui they intended to raise a family. While T.W.Ratana worked on the farm, she raised their children, Tokouru, Rawinia, Maata and Pikihuia. They had been staying on the farm for over 15 years, when strange happenings ...

Make your remembrance this year actually result in something significant. Share this with your local member, post it on his wall. Here is what Papuans did for Australians in the Second World War. Let's reciprocate: As one Australian digger has noted: "“They carried stretchers over seemingly impassable barriers, with the patient reasonably comfortable. The care they give to the patient is magnificent. If night finds the stretcher still on the track, they will find a level spot and build a shelter over the patient. They will make him as comfortable as possible fetch him water and feed him if food is available, regardless of their own needs. They sleep four each side of the stretcher and if the patient moves or requires any attention during the night, this is given instantly. These were the deeds of the ‘Fuzzy Wuzzy Angels’ – for Australian." . Message to the Australian People and Australian Prime Minister on Anzac Day. From the Alliance of Papuan Students (AMP). "To the Prime Minister, Tony Abbot, a ...

Today on Anzac Day we remember all those brave men and women who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served. I'm also reminded of our boy RAFFLES PEGASUS (FUSAICHI PEGASUS x FANFARES) brave win of the ANZAC DAY STAKES in 2011 at Flemington Racecourse and Victoria Racing Club. He is now racing in Malaysia and was a winner for us last week at Perak Turf Club, he's such a good boy.
Wow, what a day at World Cup Downhill round 2 Cairns for the Qualifying race to determine the Top 80 Elite Male riders who will contest the ultimate race tomorrow. So stoked to post that at his second only World Cup event (first in 2011) Ben gave an Old Digger (me!) the ultimate Anzac Day present by qualifying in 65th position (from 124 riders)! The track was an absolute mess with rain continuing in bucket loads overnight and into the morning with mud resembling peanut butter, slippery rocks, roots and trees which seemed to jump onto the track! However; unlike his earlier practice runs today where he crashed multiple times Ben held it together for the all important race run. Been a *** of a time cleaning, repairing and servicing the Santa Cruz v10 this afternoon but now all is in readiness to do it again tomorrow! Now to bed for a good sleep before getting it on again tomorrow in the main race - check SBS for live TV coverage!!
Had a great Anzac Day with the extended Ausi family! Party again tomorrow! And a great phone call from my wolf pack back home enjoy Benidorm boys!
What has Anzac Day got to do with Julia Gillard?
Ben Te'o is almost certain to leave the South Sydney Rabbitohs after the New Zealand Warriors joined the French rugby clubs chasing his services with an offer worth $650,000 a season. Te'o is officially a free agent after he declined to take up an option in his contract for a third year at the Rabbitohs next year. The Queensland Origin forward has told teammates he won't be staying and that he is likely to sign with a French rugby club. However, the Warriors' offer could be a wildcard after the Brisbane Broncos – the team Te'o faces at Suncorp Stadium on Anzac Day – all but ruled out a return. Souths have already made contingency plans, signing Manly back-rower Glenn Stewart. The Rabbitohs have also secured Penrith prop Tim Grant as a replacement for rugby-bound Sam Burgess.

Anzac Day of remembrance brings me once again to Jindabyne where the spirit of those that selflessly gave their all for their country is somehow alive in the minds of the mountain men, who proudly ride their amazing horses thru the town to the banks of the lake to gaze across the lake remembering as the bugle sounds the last post in the background. They gaze into the past in honour of those taken so young without the future they so bravely bestowed on us all, Thank you all, we do remember with respect & gratitude, Lest We Forget!
And one last thing on Anzac Day. At the going down at the sun we need also to remember those who came back with war fatigue as it used to be called and post traumatic stress. Many were labelled cowards because ignorance did not know any better. Many of them did things that brought on the stress or the fatigue as it was called and they have suffered and are suffering still now. Lest We Forget
Today we remember our fallen soldiers but there is one man who was a big part of Anzac Day for many people as he lead the march playing his bagpipes! He may not be a war veteran but for 25 years he carried on the Anzac legacy and spirit! Tonight is the Qld Title and there would have been nothing more special for dad than to have lead the march and then get to go racing! Lets gas it up for you old man!
Look at this amazing Anzac Day in Sydney . We have just dropped off visitors at the Four Seasons Hotel and this is their view
I'm known as a "war baby". Anzac Day is a rather significant day for me. When my mother was newly pregnant, my father went to the Gulf War for the second time. He was a clearance diver in the special forces, and thus his chance of survival was rendered very slim. But he came back. And I grew up with a Dad. I could say a lot of things in relation to my Dad and the war. Like how my family home was casually peppered with defused grenades and land mines, for instance. Or how my mother would look after us by herself for months on end. Or how proud I am of my father for doing something he believes in. Or how after already having a successful career with even further chances for promotion he abandoned opportunities to look after me when I was severely unwell. Or how when I took a boyfriend home for the first time the boy looked at my giant brass umbrella stand, asked me in fear if it was a huge shell casing, and then my father walked in the room and said, "Yes it is. Hi, I'm Steve!" But most of all I feel so luc ...
Just returned from Dandenong RSL Anzac Day march where my father John Guttrey marched as a proud Korean War veteran. Anzac Day is not about glorifying war as nobody wins a war but it about remembering those brave souls on both sides who fought for their beliefs and to also either improve or protect their country and their way of life. 160,000 lives lost defending our way of life is a solemn reminder of the price of the freedom we enjoy today. I know there are others that there that also are remembering their family members who defended us so valiantly, Julie Carter and Carron Newman are 2 I am aware of and am sure they will join me in thanking all who served for our freedoms today. Hopefully the Anzac spirit will live long after we are gone through our grandchildren and their children.

Only next time, could you do it at some time other than Anzac Day? Because all the leftist loonies are spewing their anti-defence slogans at the very worst possible time of year. Our veterans deserve better than to be told their successors are contributing to the strife and hunger of the world, as that waste of oxygen Adam Bandt has posted.
Prince William and Duchess Catherine are attending a number of ANZAC Day commemorations today, on their last day in Australia.

So thrilled that my little poem 'I Am A Mighty Kiwi' has taken flight and that I get to share it with you again, collectively with The Expats, on such a global day of significance - our ANZAC Day. We spent the morning at our local ANZAC event, with my youngest son proudly marching with his school. I captured a beautiful rendition of our New Zealand National Anthem sung by local Kiwi Laurence Richardson and his daughter Jodie which I'll share today as well. Lest We Forget, wherever you are in the world today!!!
Essendon has reached a crisis point in its season on Anzac Day.
Every Australian should aspire to pay a visit to Anzac Cove on the Gallipoli Peninsula and see for themselves the almost impossible task the Anzacs were faced with in 1915. It does not need to be on Anzac Day itself, but it is well worth it.
Watch a live stream of the Anzac Day Dawn Service from Anzac Cove.

Enter the gates of *** pay with your life, it is the ultimate sacrifice for your country. A daunting thought being greeted with death skulls but that is what the Australian and New Zealand forces encountered for eight months while trying to capture the capital of the Ottoman Empire, Constantinople, an ally of Germany. Anzac Day is not only a day of remembrance for those who died in Gallipoli during WW1 but honours all those Australian service men and women who fought so gallantly to give us the freedoms we enjoy today, Lest We Forget. See you at the Twilight Markets at Bulcock Beach Caloundra 4pm to 9 pm.
Tens of thousands have gathered at ANZAC Day Services across the country and around the world to pay their respects and remember the sacrifice of the nation's war dead.
it's just you asked if it was symbolic. I was wondering what empty seating on Anzac Day was symbolic of. All good
Proud of you and all of your mates Alex Hill, would be such a moving experience to spend Anzac Day in Gallipoli! Would love to bring dad down next year if your marching in Canberra. xo

HEROES MARCH: Darwin has paid a warm tribute to war heroes past and present at the Anzac Day march.
Whilst this time next year marks the 100th Anzac Day, April 24th next year will mark 100 years since the beginning of the Armenian Genocide. Between 1 and 1.5 million Armenians, as well as some Assyrians, Greeks and other ethnicities were systematically killed, starved and marched to death during the demise of the Ottoman Empire. So on this day next year, have the lives of 8709 Australians and their families in your thoughts who died at Gallipoli, on April 24th think about a million+ Armenians exterminated and the fact that the Turkish government STILL does not acknowledge this atrocity.
We live in the greatest country in the world, thanks to all that have served, Anzac Day in cooroy Queensland the greatest town in Australia
After attending Ethan's Anzac Day chapel service yesterday, I get the third degree from my 5yr old about not knowing the national Australian anthem. I told him I know the English one to which he answers. What's the point in that though, you don't even live there! Might be time to do my residency?!
Even better they can have a intra club on Anzac Eve & another intra club on Anzac Day.
At every Dawn Service on ANZAC Day, my thoughts turn to this amazing group of women.
Growing up in an Army town has really made me respect the service and sacrifice so many people have made and still make today to keep us free. I've seen young men come home with post traumatic stress syndrome, broken relationships and parents who miss huge pieces of their children's lives due to overseas postings. Today is one day of the year we use to respect that and sadly those who never made it home over the years. Anzac Day isn't the day to post gym selfies or complain about a cold breakfast, it's a day to respect those who were brave enough to die for our country so you have the freedom to go to the gym and go out for breakfast.
ANZAC DAY CANCELLATIONS: The Nelson Bay Bowling Club will now host the 11am ANZAC Day service. Still waiting on a decision on the march. The 10am Civic Park service in Newcastle has been moved into City Hall. Maitland march cancelled due to lightning risk. Service in Maitland park RSL 10:45am.
LPTI Lou Thyne -- the Navy's current Sailor of the Year for her outstanding work onboard HMNZS TE MANA -- was an Anzac Day guest this morning on Radio New Zealand National. Listen to her interview with host Richard Langston:
Today at some point just try take some time to really think about what ANZAC day is about. imagine, instead of worrying about what fast food we're going to eat or what gig we're going to this weekend We were literally fighting for our lives and our country, worrying if us or our friends are going to make it back alive. Try really close your eyes and picture it for a couple of mins, it's pretty mind blowing, and they deserve it a lot more than once a year, we owe them everything. Take a sec to remember there are men and women right now doing the same thing for us, by choice, if you know anyone who serves, buy em a beer from us! Lest We Forget.

To all our Australian and New Zealand service men and women - simply, thank you. My Father marches today in Brisbane today as a Vietnam Vet, and my father-in-law (Wing Commander, Pilot) commentates for the ABC telecast - head commentator, Lt Colonel John Moore was our marriage celebrant. We made the trip to Long Tan in Vietnam for last year's Anzac Day but personally, with the military as such as integral part of our lives, we appreciate the sacrifices made for our country not just today, but everyday.

Thousands of Australians have gathered across the country for Anzac Day to solemnly pay tribute to the sacrifice of men and woman in war.
I love Anzac Day for many reasons but especially as it brings back memories of my childhood growing up in Lake Boga, Victoria Every Anzac Day my grandfather, Arthur Smith Codling would lead the march as he was a returned serviceman and a lieutenant commander in the navy. In those days if your father or grandfather had served in the war you could be chosen to lay the wreath at primary school services. Then after the march we would all go the RSL Hall and eat, drink (the fathers anyway) and be merry. In later years, I have taken groups of students to the Shrine and of course the big games Collingwood v Essendon over the years.
Off to play at the 'G' today. With my fellow Good Times tour artists, we're gonna sing together before kick off of the big Anzac Day AFL match at Melbourne's huge MCG stadium. Should be big fun! Catch us live on TV just after 2pm folks.

Can we handle the truth? JAMIE WALKER THE AUSTRALIAN APRIL 25, 2014 MAX Hastings wonders just how much Australians really want to know about Gallipoli and the carnage that followed on the Western Front. Australia bled white for the mother country in World War I, and we’re going to learn much more about it over the coming four years, the rolling centenary of that terrible struggle. Recently, the British war ­historian was talking to a prominent Australian organiser of next year’s super-Anzac Day commemoration of the 1915 Gallipoli landings. “He said to me, ‘I’ve got a real problem. The Australian people think they know a huge amount about the First World War and about the history of Gallipoli, but almost everything they think they know is wrong’,’’ Hastings explains, his voice booming down the line from his home in Berkshire in Britain. “He said, ‘I’m not sure how much truth they can afford to take next year’.’’ Hastings points out that more Frenchmen died in the ill-fated Dard ...

Anzac Day is always a day of remembering those that have gone. But now more so then ever for us. Our hearts are not heavy with sadness for old soldiers. Instead mine aches for gorgeous little Gracie. Every time I hear Hawaiian Izzy sing "somewhere over the rainbow" I am reminded of the saddest day of my life. We miss you. I can't believe a year has passed already.

Anzac Day to me 2014... As a fifth generation Aussie I am proud in the fact my Great Grandfather, Charles M Clift OAM defended our country in the First and Second World Wars. Him, alongside others fought the battles that made our country great. I am forever grateful to them all. Sadly no man will ever have the mate ship or comeradery these Hero's shared and cherished so much. I wonder what these great men would think of today's mate ship when your friend is down on their luck and you suffer and go without to lend them that helping hand they desperately need, you defend them and forgoing other mates your solidarity does not budge only to have them steal from you and your family and the home you opened so freely to them. I'm ashamed of myself for letting the Hero's down for allowing anyone to make me feel bad for being "their mate".I will remember them.
Sitting here in the dark with my teething baby and realised this time twelve years ago we were just arriving at the memorial at Anzac Cove. Watching dawn break over the beach, hearing the lone bag piper coming towards us, twenty thousand people and you could have heard a pin drop. Was one of the most beautiful, touching, inspiring and humbling moments of my life, and I had never felt so proud to be an Australian. Thank you to all those kind people who continue to serve our country and may we never again have to experience such senseless loss. What followed was also, hands down, one of the best trips of my life with some truly great friends Erin, Gill, Janelle, Brett and Peter - for some reason having trouble tagging Rochelle??? Also, happy fifth wedding anniversary to my brother Matt and his gorgeous wife Kellie. Love you both, see you in a few weeks. So, to all my friends, happy Anzac Day, and GO BOMBERS!✌️   10% Off

Good night peoples! It's nearly time for the dawn Anzac Day service! Does 4:30 am exist on a public holiday? Except as a kid at Christmas waking your brother up at 4 am because Santa in all his wisdom gave you the operation board game, it's a cruel world
For Anzac Day, thousands of South Australians will pause to recognise the courage, mateship and sacrifice of those who fought for our country.
It was goosebumps all round today at Somerville Primary when the students and staff attended an Anzac Day service conducted by our senior students. Our children were awesome. Their sense of community and understanding was and is a tribute to their families and our wonderful senior team. The Senior teachers and kids should be enormously proud of themselves. The attending students (around 250 of them) sat beautifully throughout and were very respectful. Well done to everyone involved and a special thanks to James Pulling for assisting our kids. Our principal Sue and all the staff are bursting with pride. Brilliant guys.
April 24, 2014: Security measures have been ramped-up for tomorrow's Anzac Day Dawn Service at Gallipoli after a protest interrupted last year's ceremony.
hard to put into words the gratitude and pride I feel for our fighting men both past and present. we were brought up with the full knowledge of Anzac Day and what it meant to Australians and what would have been the outcome if they were not successful during the Second World War. Dad (Jack Hoath) fought in 2/10th Battallion and I have always will be so grateful for what they did for our country and our futures. Remember, they left the bush and went overseas to fight for our freedom against huge odds. A day we remember Dad tomorrow more than any other day of the year.

Hi Guys, is anyone heading to an Anzac Day service tomorrow?
Don't miss 9 News' special LIVE coverage of Anzac Day commemorations, TOMORROW from 4.30am on Channel 9.
ANZAC Day , a personal perspective BDC Anzac day stirs all sorts of emotions for many , I always think of a childhood friend LS John Hammond ,we grew up in a quiet street in East Malvern, who joined the Navy in 1986 saw service in the Gulf in 91 and got out in 98. He was married with a young daughter Brodie. After attending the march in Sydney in his best suit and gongs in '99 John had rung the missus to say he was at the bus stop heading home when he saw a couple of street hoods mugging an old lady at an ATM across the way, whilst not the biggest nor burliest of blokes, John knew what he had to do , help her! He did in that in the true Aussie spirit and was fatally stabbed by those gutless little *** So amongst mates and sons that we have lost on battle fields I always think of John his daughter and wife on this day. He just did what came naturally as a protector. Some Anzac days afterwards I chopped wood as it was way to channel to vent! [ I often think of him , his brother James was in the RAAF i ...

Sailing down the English coastline. Scotland was just like you think - misty, mysterious. Edinburgh Castle was fabulous, so big and still an operational barracks. Pipers met us on arrival in port. Westminster Abbey tomorrow for Anzac Day. At sea today. Keith devastated - 4 legged kids toddled off without looking back for their resort holiday. Had email saying they were well behaved and making friends with another springer. Think they were talking about someone else's dogs. The parrot was wide eyed when he saw all the other parrots bigger than him. Back to cruising. Maybe a massage, time in the spa. Lots of bars to choose from.

Such a moving, emotion-filled Anzac Day service at school today - the most touching ever. Could not help wiping a few tears away. And you could literally hear a pin drop - such respect towards our fallen diggers. What a privilege to live in a country where the fallen are remembered, honoured and appreciated for sacrificing their lives in a vain effort to ensure peace. Lest We Forget.
From all of us here at Animal Welfare League – we wish you a safe and happy Anzac day and long weekend.
💜 a 3 day week! Fake Bake Hair and Beauty Boutique will be closed tomorrow for Anzac Day but will open again on Saturday.
As we approach Anzac Day tomorrow, I often wonder how much thought is given to the elderly wives that are still living. Those that went through the Second World War are in their late 80's and 90's now. They don't need parades and ceremonies but very often need more practical and everyday assistance for them to lead a dignified life. Most are frail but are still 'soldiering' on.. Maybe politicians/society in general, could loosen their purse strings to honour these remaining women and make their final days more comfortable... while we say Lest We Forget in memory of the fallen, maybe we could also say Lets Not Forget those still living..
For my African friends, tomorrow is Anzac Day, in remembrance of Australian and New Zealand soldiers who died in the 1914-18 First World War 1, and in all wars after that. Fighting and War is dumb, but we never learn from the past.

Have one for the good old diggers tomorrow and definitely spare a moment or 2 of gratitude for what these guys have had to endure both while they were there on the battlefield and afterwards - such a big burden to carry for us and the price of freedom.
Despite recent rain, the Anzac Day long weekend is the perfect opportunity for Queenslanders to prepare their homes ahead of bushfire season. Remember: it is never too early to start your preparations for the bushfire season. The best way to prepare was to clear space around your home, fill any gaps in the eaves, around windows and door frames, protect any large under-deck areas with non-flammable screens and ensure you remove any fire hazards around the house. In the garden, we advise you clear and remove undergrowth, rake up bark, leaves and twigs and ensure your property has cleared access for fire trucks. These simple actions can make a difference to whether your property survives a bushfire safely, or sustains significant damage. If we all do a little, we’ll accomplish a lot. The long weekend was a great time for residents to sit down with their families to learn how to stay safe ahead of the season. For further information on how to develop a Bushfire Survival Plan, prepare for bushfire season, le ...

A list of some of the Anzac Day commemorations to be held around the world.
Tomorrow, Anzac Day, in association with the Waihi Genealogy Association we are organising a walk around the Waihi cemetery, telling stories about some of the people who served in the First World War who are buried or commemorated at the cemetery. The walk starts at 4 pm - all welcome. If it is raining the story telling will take place at the museum.
Today Friday 25/4/14, we celebrate Anzac Day... Thank you Australia and may the Lord bless the souls of your martyrs.. those diggers who died so that we can enjoy real freedom, the best of human rights and true democracy in this, the greatest nation in the world.. Lest We Forget
Anzac Day ride update. Pete is going up to ride Mt Macedon. Leaving his place in Glenhuntly at 6.30am driving to Tim Gray's place in Riddells Creek. We'd do a transfer ride, but for the fact that the Sunbury line is off line! I'll have the Oddessy which can carry 4 bikes and thus we can car pool if that works for you. If you're interested, let Pete know. Not 100% sure of our route. But Tim has promised the hard way up Macedon. Perfect! Lest We Forget
Yesterday was a shorter day with the guys arriving into camp at 1pm. There was a bit of completion for camping space as there are a few groups finishingKokoda in time for Anzac Day.  Goldie River was waist deep so nearly back to normal as there was no rain during the day   We expect the guys at Owers Corner at 7am and they should be back in Port Moresby by 9am
