This year marks the 100th Anniversary of the ANZACs – the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. Anzac Day – 25 April – is one of Australia’s most important national occasions; it marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

In Sydney there is a fabulous bridge named in honour of these brave heroes. At the western end of the bridge stand two bronze statues – one an Australian and the other a New Zealander. Each supporting structure has atop it a flag, one is that of Australia, the other of New Zealand.
“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.”
