Anzac Day 2017 - Lest we forget


Here in NZ and Australia on April 25th is Anzac Day - meaning Australia/New Zealand Army Corps.  It marks the anniversary of the troops landing in Gallipoli in 1915 - they were meant to take over the Dardenelles but at the end it was still held by the Turkish.

I feel in horror for what our military has gone through over the years...all for us. So many people these days have hurt feelings over minor issues, someone says something - someone else is up in arms. Try going through what these young volunteers went through - makes me think that's for sure.

  3. I came across the memorial for a solder in a churchyard this weekend who was killed there. Sad to think how many were effected by the war

  4. I was lucky enough to work WWII veterans. The never complained and always did their job. If you ever needed anything they were always there to help out.
