Default Anzac Day 25 April

We Will Remember Them.

My wife and I attended what might be the first Dawn Service this year in Gisborne, East Coast, New Zealand. Great turnout of veterans and public, young and old.

Lest we forget,

John

I did ANZAC Day today at my old regiment.

Later had a great chat with a AATTV Veteran who was awarded the DCM at the local RSL

He served in Korea, 2 tours of Malaya and 3 tours of Vietnam.

Default Harefield

St Mary's churchyard has 127 war graves from both World War I and World War II. 112 of the war graves are from the Australian Army Corps.

In 1921 began the annual ceremony in which the children from the school put flowers on every grave in the cemetery.

Yesterday we held an ANZAC service at Harrogate CWG Cemetery where there are some 97 men of the Royal Australian Air Force and 23 of the Royal New Zealand Air Force rest here among over a 1,000 airman.

Members of the UK, American, Australian & New Zealand Armed Forces attended.
