In just over ten hours, the solemn dawn service will get under way to mark Anzac Day. Not far from where the service is held at the Shrine of Remembrance is this wall, with words that define much of what Australia stands for.
The word “Anzac” is derived from the Australia and New Zealand Army Corps, and Anzac Day commemorates the landings at Gallipoli in 1915.
Most people stand well back at this wall to read the whole inscription. Then, with any self-consciousness, they tend to step forward and trace their hands over some of the letters.
