Today is Anzac Day, Friday the 25th of April 2014.
This is a copy of what I found in an ABC News Report:
“Thousands of Australians have attended dawn services around the country to commemorate Anzac Day and honour the men and women who have fought and died in war.
The services mark the 99th anniversary of the first landings by Australian and New Zealand troops at Gallipoli in 1915.
More than 35,000 people were expected at today’s national ceremony at the Australian War Memorial.
Prince William and Catherine, the Duchess of Cambridge were surprise attendees at the dawn service in Canberra.”
I got up at 5 am and watched dawn services from Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne on ABC TV.
The Anzac Day March in Sydney starts at 9 am. I think I am going to watch some of this. There is also to watch the Anzac Day Dawn Service at Gallipoli which is shown at 12,30 our time., and then at 1,30 pm our time there is the Villers-Britonneux Memorial Service from France. I like to watch all these sombre services with their beautiful musical displays and reciting of poems and stories.
