Anzac Day 2016




Anzac Day occurs on the 26th April.
It marks the anniversary of the landing of the
Australian and New Zealand soldiers
known as the 
ANZACS
on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey
during the First World War in 1915.




On this day we commemorate all New Zealanders
and Australians
killed in war and we honour
our returned servicemen and women.






The War Memorial Museum
is the venue for our
Anzac Day Memorial Service in Auckland.

There are services in every city and small town
throughout New Zealand
and Australia.




I'm joining

Judith for Mosaic Monday
Gemma for Ruby Tuesday Too
and the girls at Our World Tuesday


Take care and
be kind to one another

à bientôt



Shane

  12. WWI was so brutal, but aren't all wars. We watched a series on PBS about the nurses from Australia and New Zealand. It was pretty amazing and sobering.

  15. I'm always a bit surprised when I see posts about your Anzac day - our Remembrance Day is in November and for some reason I tend to think it's a worldwide thing. Doesn't matter when it is, it's good to be reminded of the sacrifices of our service men and women.
