Great turnout in my small town this morning. Lots of young people too.

In defense of freedom and liberty they paid the ultimate price. Lest we forget.

Too bad that when China takes over those celebrations will be banned and all memorials destroyed.

A hardy thank you for the Anzac Troops in WW1, WW2, Korea, Vietnam and Afghanistan...

Better friends are hard to find... ( not leaving out Canada here for our Canuck campfire friends)

I have the honor of knowing Anzac Vets in my youth when I lived in England as a kid in the 60s... both WW 1 and WW2 veterans...

Less we always remember...

Cheers from America....

God Bless each an everyone of you, past present and future.

Didn't realise that you have an aussie background - I'm also from Brisbane. Who are the people in the earlier posted photos?

We observed two Anzak Days when we lived in a suburb (Chelmer) of Brisbane. Very moving.
