For over 100 years, “ANZAC Day” has been observed in Australia, becoming our honoured and sacred institution. I can remember, as a kid, going with my dad. He enjoyed meeting up with the guys from his WW2 unit. They fought in the Lae area of New Guinea from Jan 45. I doubt any of them are with us now.
Here is a famous picture of one such veteran marching that took the internet by storm. No one knows who he is, but we all feel his pain.
Our office will be closed, but our after-hours and emergency support will be running non-stop throughout ANZAC Day today. It is available both for urgent and standard calls.
Please do not ring me unless it is urgent as I want the day off with my kid, ring Micahel instead. I will be back on Tuesday.
