ANZAC DAY 25th April 2011

Today we attended the memorial for soldiers who fought and lost in the battle of Gallipoli 96 years ago on this day in which almost 12,000 Australians & New Zealanders lost their lives. To see most of the towns people of Goodiwindi attend ( I’m sure this happens all over Australia & New Zealand) brings a sombre feeling of humbleness ,proudness & humility. It is good to see forces veterans & children mixing to honour heroes of all wars Speeches were given by 2 senior school pupils who reflected on their visit to Gallipoli in 2010 The playing of the Last Post by the lone bugler raises the hairs on the back of my neck and the emotions displayed by the crowd was electric Lest We Forget
