Today is when we celebrate our kinship with our Mates from across the ditch. we in NZ do this today as its the anniversary of that terrible battle for the land around Gallipoli in which so many brave souls perished in 5 months of hell on earth.
God Bless all you service folk
Rest In Peace all you fallen hero's...we will remember you and never forget the horrors you endured to ensure our freedom.

Thanks Elvis. ANZAC Day commemorates a loss in battle, but most importantly commemorates a bonding between two fledgling nations into lifelong friends, brothers and allies.

The battle at Gallipoli bought horrendous losses on both sides, but it also bought to the fore the honour of both sides, in particular the Turkish military commander and later President Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. Araturk later penned a note to the mothers of those soldiers lost.

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives ... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries, wipe away your tears. Your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land, they have become our sons as well."

As we move into uncertain times, let us never forget the sacrifices made both those heroes who made the ultimate sacrifice so that we can live in (relative) peace.

LEST WE FORGET

Yes mate...he was a well respected and honourable man, a leader that many of today's politicians could learn from.
