    Just to remember those that gave their lives.

    Annivery of the Gallipoli Landings.
    Many ANZAC and British soldiers lost their lives in the battle, remembered in Oz, NZ and also by the Royal Regiment of Fusiliers.
    One of our antecedent Regiments, The Lancashire Fusiliers, fought there, so today has become one of our Regimental Days.

    @rangitira will, no doubt, be wearing a sprig of Rosemary today.

    Turkey honours the fallen of other lands just as it does its own fallen sons.

    Two things I remember about ANZAC day in Sydney in the early 70s. One you couldn't walk on the pavements of Kings Cross for games of pitch an toss, and two you wouldn't advertise it if your name was Churchill.

    RIP lest we forget. It was when the Aussies finally became an independent nation.
