100 years ... Lest We Forget
Tomorrow marks the 100 year anniversary of the Gallipoli landing.
Like thousands of Australians, or more likely millions, we will be at a Dawn Service to mark the occasion. The service will not only remember those that fought and died at Gallipoli, but all of those who have served and do serve in the Australian and New Zealand armed forces.
Both the girls' schools held remembrance services today. I am surprised by the facts about Gallipoli that they have been taught. I remember the ANZAC services from my school days but I don't remember being taught about what it represented or means in the depth that they have been. I am very pleased that this is part of their education.
