And for those of us not living "down under"?

Would you please enlighten us on this subject?

ANZAC day is our national day of rememberance for all those who served in wartime.

It is based around commemoration of the Australian and New Zealand forces who fought at Gallipoli at the beginning of the First World War, but has since been expanded to include all campaigns in which Australians took part.

The Gallipoli campaign was a terrible failure but the troops who fought there displayed the finest qualities at the highest level, fighting for the first time under their national flag.
It is often referred to as the birthplace of our nation - where the Australian public realised they were no longer just a colony.

I have been watching the live coverage of the ceremony in Turkey, where despite the great distances to be travelled, tens of thousands of Australians gather each year to pay their respects. I thought I would wave a flag in this part of the cyberworld to any other Aussies who might be reading.

To our Australian friends, we here in the USl fully understand the remembrance of all the courageous men who have died serving their country many of whom have fought beside our own, especially since our two nations share so much in common, including being an ex-colony.
Regards,
John
