Anzac Day April 25 2013   1 comment

We got up early this morning at 3.40 to be at Cleveland for the Anzac Day Dawn service – even getting there an hour before the ceremony at 5.30, still only got us a couple of rows backfrom the front, and by the time the ceremony started there were thousands of people there.

The ANZAC spirit grows stronger every year – Lest we forget.

ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia’s most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

Some photos I took in the low light of the service.
