Anzac Day


Recommended Posts

To all of our members who are returned servicemen , I hope the coins fall in your favour , and the :beersmile: keeps coming!

To everyone else , please take a moment some time today to remember those who went to war , and never came back .

They shall not grow old as we who are left grow old.

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning,

Having a few :beersmile: for the service people today. Especially my mate Gaz who is over in the Gaza Strip doing a tour as an international observer with a company of Columbians (kind of odd I thought, Australia and Columbia were not the first pairing I would think of working together in the Middle East).

Lest we forget.

Gents for the first time we held an Anzac service at the Auburn Gallipoli Mosque which is a Turkish mosque located in Auburn.

Its the first of its kind. After the service we held again for the 1st time a Citizenship ceremony for new Australians at the mosque.

It goes to show that peace is always available if you look in the right areas

I salute and pay my respects to the diggers who sacrificed all they have in Gallipoli and to my fellow countrymen aswell who sacrificed all they have in defending their country

Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives. You are now living 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 here 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.

Words of rememberance from Kemal Ataturk, commanding chief of the Turkish Army at Gallipoli. Found engraved at Gallipoli Cove

By the way, its good to be back on the site.

Hi to everyone
