"It was an April morning when they told us we should go...."

On this most solemn of national days we salute the brave men and women of Australia and New Zealand who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

We remember too, our fallen allies from the UK, Canada, Asia and the US who we were alongside with fighting the good fight.

We also think about those brave Turkish soldiers who were killed protecting their homeland.

My grandfather who is no longer among us told me about the horror of war, one day I might write it all down.

He told me that once you're facing an enemy you are not fighting for King or country, you are fighting for your life.

As pilgrims gather at Gallipoli, Turkey and Villiers-Brettoneux, France and across Oz and NZ for the dawn services, a grateful thank you to those for allowing us to live the free life we often take for granted.

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.

Well in.

Here's to commemorating ANZAC Day and thank you for standing by Britain in times of darkness. You didn't have to, but you did.

My respect and thanks to all the ANZAC veterans.
