ANZAC Day is a very special day here in Australia.  Some people look at it as just another day off work but for me it is so much more.  My grandfather, great grandfather and great uncles have all fought for Australia at different times in history.  I have friends who have served our great nation in more recent theatres of war.  On this day I think it is most important to reflect and give thanks – to those who have made the ultimate sacrifice, to those who served in the past and to those who are still out there protecting us today.  These brave men and women have my utmost respect and thanks.

My grandfather, Walter Deakin

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.
