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.

For My Fellow Ausies... Just saw a post by a guy saying anyone who celebrates Australia Day or Anzac Day is a racist. Okay, so you come to MY country and you don't want to accept the Australian way of life and you speak trash about the men and women who fought for our freedom. We'll guess what? Last time I checked, Australia has LOTS of airports. And if you don't like it, you are more than free to go catch one - the sooner the better. I will never understand the mentality of people who come to live in ANY nation but are filled with a lack of respect towards or hatred for a country that has opened its doors to them. Try expressing your 'freedoms' in the land you came from. The news is filled with the 'tolerance' shown there.

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?
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!

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 ...

“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.

115/365 We shall remember them Annie Irving originally shared: 115/365 We shall remember them I’m not ashamed to say I shed some tears at the Anzac Day war remembrance service at Auckland War Memorial Museum today: first, the bagpipes and, later, the trumpeter playing the Last Post – there’s something haunting about both sounds; the old soldiers marching with such dignity, the young people showing their respect, everyone singing our National Anthem with such pride.

Omg! Kanye west is playing for Collingwood in the Anzac Day match!!! Oh my godA
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.

Dear Tony Abbott. Thanks for signing up for the F-35s, a one-for-one replacement of our existing fighter force is exactly what Australia needs. 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.

A MUCH lower-than-expected crowd of just four-thousand 400 pilgrims has gathered for the 99th anniversary Anzac Day dawn service in Gallipoli.

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.

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.

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.

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!✌️
