They gave their tomorrows, so we could have our today

Lest We forget

ANZAC (Australian and New Zealand Army Corps) Day is a National Day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand that commemorates all Australians and New Zealanders  who served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations and the contribution and suffering of all those who have served.

Originally April 25th was to honour those who fought at Gallipoli during World War 1 and one of the traditions of Anzac Day is the ‘gunfire breakfast’ (coffee with rum added) which occurs shortly after many dawn ceremonies, and recalls the ‘breakfast’ taken by many soldiers before facing battle.

So on April 25th we think of all those that faced battle and we never forget!
