Thank you

Tommorrow is ANZAC Day. It is a national holiday, honouring all our fallen soliders in all wars. The name ANZAC (Australian New Zealand Army Corps) came from Australia’s unsucessful attempt to conquer part of Turkey in World War 1. Stupid british sent us in to die, we managed to get out with no casulities though. People were fighting less that 2 metres apart for around ages, they could throw packets of cigarettes over the trenches! It has been said that 2 “personalities” were born at that battle ground, the Australian and Turkish.
I just wanted to say, Thank-you to everyone that has fought for what i have today, and what my kids will have in the future. I know it is a cliche, but they died for my freedom. So this goes out to all that are no longer with us, and those that are. Including the sometimes forgotten Vietnam Vets. Thank-you.

    That’s right we were slaughtered and the artillery didn’t even cover us we lost most of the men at the Gap, Nek where we were mowed down with shot guns and the earth still has a white tinge due to all the decaying bones we were unable to retrieve in our withdrawal…..glad to see you back and writing had missed it and wondered what was going on….love always Kirst oxox

    I concurr with your sentiments. We do have much to be grateful for – when you think that kids much younger than you went to war and died and didn’t get to enjoy what we do, it is humbling. Just one thing though, we actually lost thousands of men at Gallipoli…it was a blood bath… and I believe, it marked the beginning of us as a country, realising that we needed to make our own decisions as a nation – and not just stupidly obey orders from “mother England” too many good men lost their lives for nothing.
