Lest We Forget…a Day to Remember and pattern launch

Today marks the 99th anniversary of our ANZAC’s battling for our freedom on the shores of Gallipoli……..

Anzac Day

….commemorating the young men and women who battled for us, those who lost their lives for us, those who live with horrific war injuries, and who continue to wage the war against terrorism so that we might live freely…..

Thank you for the bit of a history lesson to those of us in the northern hemisphere...they don't teach us about this in our schools. I think you have created a beautiful tribute to your country's heroes!

What a lovely post. I always forget you were in it earlier than we were. I've heard it said, actually that those months of battle were what led to the downfall of the Ottoman and the birth of the Republic of Turkey. The poem on the photo is one I've always liked, though it isn't ours. It could be said of all those young men who still die today in battles against evil. Thanks for this post.
