Why is Anzac day important? The Australian and New Zealand Army Corps were the brave soldiers who stood, fought and died during WWII (1914). In 1915, Australia became witness to the new army of volunteer soldiers. The brave forces went out to the Gallipoli Peninsula to claim Constantinople, the capital of the Ottoman Empire and one of Germany's allies. When the Anzacs landed on April 25th, the Ottoman Turkish defenders were ready for the attack. The soldiers knew that winning was impossible. Nevertheless, they continued to fight for 8 months. Notwithstanding the hardships, bloodshed and the loss of over 8,000 lives, the remaining were successfully evacuated by the British. The story of the soldiers, the ANZAC legends who gave their lives in Gallipoli, hit the hearts of Australians. In 1916, they made April 25th the day these heroes are to be remembered for their sacrifices and their commitment to uphold liberty at all costs. Today, we hold this special event to remember and express our gratitude to the Knights of Gallipoli who selflessly risked their lives for the common good and for believing that their respective countries are worth fighting and dying for. Thank you. . . . _____________________ @newcastlelive @mynewcastle @newcastlelifestyle @newcastlensw @visitnsw @seeaustralia @austtraveller @exploreaustralia @discoveraustralia @instralia @australiagram @seeaustralia #aussievideos @austtravellermag #newcastlensw #visitnsw #mynewcastle #australiagram #newcastlelifestyle @ig_australia__ #ig_australia_ #ig_australia #exploreaustralia #discoveraustralia @destination_nsw #destination_nsw #sonyalpha #sonya6000 @uni_newcastle @uonstudentliving @uonstudentcentral @uonalumni @uongallery @uonlawschool
Dawn service with my 2 favourite Bombers. Today, we not only pay respects to our fallen heroes but for the Men and Women who still serve this great nation. Let’s also remember the ones who have returned and struggle with the demons inside as a result of conflict. Your sacrifice has not gone unnoticed! . . They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning, We will remember them. Lest we forget✋🏽. 🇦🇺🌹🇳🇿
Last year, I was a passive, but moved, spectator of the Anzac Celebration. Now, I made my first active participation as one of the prayer leaders in the ceremony in Merewether. The event recalls the bravery the young Aussies exhibited in the fight against hate and in their love for the land beneath the radiant Southern Cross.
In a far off land, where crosses stand And crimson poppies grow Lies the beating heart of courage Of our Anzacs, row on row They touched our heart, right from the start With their eagerness and skill To stand for our great nations They fought, with strength and will From bushy blokes, to city folks They crossed that great divide And joined as one almighty force To fight on side by side They tacked war, and what they saw Without a minute’s thought They were fighting for our freedom In a battle bravely fought Our soldiers lost, came at a cost To the wives and mothers too As we lost a generation The remaining ones were few So, take a minute’s silence As you bow your head and pray As we mark, one hundred years Of the sacrifice, that day And when you hear that final note Come from the bugler’s horn Remember, in our nation Their spirit will live on. Thank you lest we forget #lessweforget
