Lest We Forget

April 25th is Anzac Day in Australia. It's our day to honor veterans and remember those who have died defending our freedom. Anzac stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corp and the day initially referred to the those soldiers who served and died in the battle at Gallipoli during world war two.

For more information about this special day for Australian's here's an interesting link to check out. Anzac Day History and Traditions.

At the traditional dawn service for Anzac Day, Australians often leave red poppies as a sign of rememberance for the fallen. 

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.

Lest We Forget.
