They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condem them.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning, we will remember them.

Lest we Forget

To all our Australian and New Zealand diggers, old and young, and still serving. We hope you have a great day.

Don't lose to much in the Two up School.

With greatfull Thank's

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not 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.

Salute!

Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me
And his ghost may be heard as you pass by the billabong,
"Who'll come a-Waltzing Matilda, with me?"

I marched with the RAN Viet Nam contingent in Adelaide this morning and caught up with some mates from waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay back, i.e. mid 60's.
Great morning and I'm still sober.

Brings a tear to the eye m8.
Took my old dad to the Dawn Service this morning.
At 89 he's starting to show his age a little.
He's a New Guinea vet. and all his crew in Newcastle are gone.

S! And Respects.

From the news in my town today :
http://www.peterborough.gov.uk/page-11248

An Anzac soldier who ended up in a fen town in East Anglia (England). Taken off a casualty train as it passed through our town due to his deteriorating condition, and sadly subsequently dying.

Local folk made donations for his memorial.

Today I remember him, and my great Uncle, Pte William Lampard,8th reinforcements to the 1st AIF, 2nd Div, 5th Bde, 18th Battalion. KIA Flers 7th November 1916.

Yeah, I wish my grandfather lived in the same part of New Zealand as me, so I could take him along to one of the bigger parades. Maybe next year.

My family had one killed at Gallipoli in the Wellington Regiment in the NZEF. They went through 3 months fighting, before the August offensives, where in capturing and holding a hill (Chunuk Bair). When they captured the hill, they had 760 men, when they were relieved on the night of the 8/9 August, they had 70.

Amazing how malnourished, sick, tired men managed to continue fighting through the whole day with those horrendus casualties.
