    ANZAC Day 2018

    Getting prepped for the dawn service tomorrow brought out a scarf I got ages ago as I thought it fitting to wear it for the last year of the war in 1918.
    Dad's medals come out on this day and whilst not on the proper mount are as my brother had them before he passed away suddenly at the age of 43 so I leave them alone.
    The shirt they are attached to was made by the Bravery trust which started them in 2014 with an initial 1000 shirts by ballot only all the monies went to the RSL and XLH brigade.
    Then they went through the first fleet up to this one all are different but for the cause of us never forgetting.
    Sadly Glenda passed away in 2017 who's embroidery business was doing them as it was her original idea and it morphed into a huge undertaking as she underestimated the demand for these shirts which are numbered with ones ballot No. and have a COA signed by her.
    So they will not be done again and if they are will not be original to the person whom started it.
    "We Shall Never Forget."

    Gallipoli what a mess and what a sad loss. I watched a film sometime ago about a runner at Gallipoli wish I could remember the film name. The actor was supposedly playing the part of an Australianicon runner who was quick on his feet, who eventually was killed in that S*** hole.
    Found it here it is and for those who haven't see it worth every minute:

    I knew you would have beaten me to mention ANZAC day Cinders but good on you. Today was the first Dawn Service that I can actually remember; every other time I was either too young or doing other things. Looks like it will be a bright and warm day after the cold morning so I hope we can all enjoy it.

    Well quite the crowd down at Peppermint Grove Beach for the 4th dawn service held there a sure sign the tradition burns bright in the following generations it was great to see they now have a flag pole and a plaque there donated by local businesses to make the service even more fitting & proper as it should be, I would put a figure of @350-400 persons there of all ages its was bitingly cold there especially just before the sun came up.
    For those in Aus that have served and continue to do so you have my gratitude I raise my glass to you all.

    Lest we forget Ron....

    My uncle did a tour with 460 (Australia) bomber Squadron ( flight engineer, Lancasters) during the war, 460 had the highest loss rate in Bomber Command I believe.

    The Australianicon flag is always raised here on ANZAC day, to remember the sacrifice of our Commonwealth brothers.
