Acknowledging ANZAC Day

Post  Oldenginerod on Mon Apr 24, 2017 5:49 pm

Gentlemen (& Ladies), as is my normal practice I want to acknowledge ANZAC Day, celebrated here in Australia, New Zealand, France, Belgium and Turkey.

We remember the great and brave sacrifice of those who fought & died at Anzac Cove, Turkey, on the 25th of April 1915, along with the many thousands who perished on the Western Front, Fromelles, Villers-Bretonneux and the many other battle fields in France and Belgium where Australians (and others) gave their lives for our freedom.

We also acknowledge those who served in all subsequent conflicts, to this very day, where brave young men & women are still willing to risk their own lives so that others in this world can enjoy the freedoms that we have.

Flanders Fields Poem wrote:
The World’s Most Famous WAR MEMORIAL POEM
By Lieutenant Colonel John McCrae

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place: and in the sky
The larks still bravely singing fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the dead: Short days ago,
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved: and now we lie
In Flanders fields!

Take up our quarrel with the foe
To you, from failing hands, we throw
The torch: be yours to hold it high
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.


Composed at the battlefront on May 3, 1915
during the second battle of Ypres, Belgium.
