Anzac Day - A tribute in images and words.

Anzac Day is very important to Australians, young and old.
To defend the Commonwealth our newly federated nation sacrificed almost an entire generation of young men. In just eight months of battle in Gallipoli we lost over 8,000 men and New Zealand lost 2,700.
Australia and New Zealand have not had to fight for independence nor suffer the ravages of a civil war but for both our nations WI was our ‘blood letting’.
While Federation in 1901 made our group of colonies one, the sacrifice made during Gallipoli and WI forged our nation and gave us a camaraderie still present today.
I would like to pay homage to these men and women by compiling images and words found on red bubble to commemorate Anzac Day this year, Friday April the 25th, 2008. Lest we forget!

Anzac’s by judithtaylor

They shall not grow old,
As we who 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

from ‘For The Fallen’ Laurence Binyon
