Anzac Day


Today we attended the ANZAC commemoration march and service at Kandos. Similar events are held in every town and city on this day.

  1. Anzac Day is so emotional, all the young people who died, or came back changed. What frightens me most is that those in positions of power are forgetting ✨

    1. These are difficult times to negotiate and I have confidence in those in power (whatever the colour of their politics) making well considered and sometimes difficult decisions in matters such as this.

    1. Both of my parents were in the forces during the war. My father was awarded a Distinguished Flying Medal which is awarded for "exceptional valour, courage or devotion to duty whilst flying in active operations against the enemy".

      I always think of them on Anzac Day as it was very important to them.

  3. We have Memorial Day in the U.S. at the end of May.

  4. I remember ANZAC Day in Carnarvon 1995. There were only few onlookers as most residents were taking part in the parade. Very emotional.
    Not surprisingly we have nothing like this.

    1. It can be a bit like that in small towns, everybody in the march. In Kandos the marchers were veterans, schools and volunteer groups like the Rural Fire Service. That left enough of the rest of us to be onlookers.

    1. Yes. It is good to reflect so we don't forget.
