Here in Australia, and other parts of the world, we pay our respects to those who made the ultimate sacrifice in the defence of their Country by holding a minutes silence at the 11th hour, on the 11th Day of the 11th Month in respect of our fallen heroes.

Lest we forget!

"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"

Isn't that what 'Anzac Day' is for? Is there now going to be two days where we celebrate the government sending people off to die in another country.
Super

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand, 25 April, to honour the members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli during WW1.

It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.

Remembrance Day is the British/Commonwealth version of our Veteran's Day I believe.

Hats off and a salute to all veterans!

Why do they then march all the current army regiments down the street every year on Anzac day, all the Vietnam veterans, and other unrelated sqadrons...

I think there's no true ANZACs left is there, so will that day now be abandoned?

thanks

There's a thread here showing the landscape in Western Europe still scarred from the fighting of WW1 - www.abovetopsecret.com...&flagit=774484.

I salute the brave men from Australia who fought for the Commonwealth on battlefields from France to the Phillipines in both great wars. My American grandfather was there with your men nearly a century ago.

The ANZACs fought in France during World War I? I thought they only fought in the Middle East (Bersheba) & Turkey (Gallipoli).
