Today on the 25th April in Australia and New Zealand we celebrate Anzac Day. It is a day to remember the soliders who fought and those that lost their lives in battle for our freedom. Lest We Forget Shall we ever forget the day the boys marched away, to fight for their king and their home, with a smile on their lips and their faces aglow, and no thoughts of the days yet to come? Shall we ever forget thier whistle and shout, their songs and laughter and fun? to them twas a joke, and a spree and a lark till they came face to face with the Hun. Shall we ever forget how they took up their place In the trenches so muddy and cold. When "bully and biscuit" was "dinner and tea" Yet their spirits were still brave and bold Shall we ever forget when the news arrived home That a loved one had fallen out there? The sun seemed to set, the birds ceased to sing And the future seemed dark with dispair Shall we ever forget when peace was declared And the nation when mad with delight Yet for many twas sad: no homecoming for them Still they joined in the shouts with their might Shall we ever forget our glorious dead Who freely gave all they could give Now in marble and granite, still more in our hearts We will praise them as long as we live. A. N. Cole 1925 Thankyou for fighting for our country and freedom. I will never forget what you have done for us.
