Remembering ANZAC Day

I have actually just re-watched the TV series of ANZACs, so it has certainly been a day of remembrance for me today.  My grandfathher fouught in the same areas (except for Gallipoli), and ironically my other Grandfather's best friend from the mid 20's, untill he died in 1970 lost a leg at Gallipoli.

So, yes I have made ANZAC biscuits (and this year as I am not at work I get to eat them all myself!!)

Here are a few photos I took in 2018 on The Western Front - at Tyne Cott Cemetery, and Caterpiller Valley Cemetery.

They shall grow not old. as we that are left grow old
Age shall not weary, not the years condemn
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We will remember them
