ANZAC Day 2009

ANZAC Day is the anniversary of Australian and New Zealand troops landing on the shores of Gallipoli in 1915. A day to show respect and to offer thanks to the brave men and women who risked their lives to keep our shores safe.

It is also a day to thank those soldiers that continue in the footsteps of our forefathers. To offer our sympathy to those who have lost loved ones in recent times. It is a day that when you hear the sound of the last post, that your heart beats a little faster, tears well in your eyes and your thoughts go to those serving overseas in wars or peacekeeping operations.

We bow our heads for a minutes silence.

'They shall not grow 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.'
