They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:Anzac Day - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
For The Fallen, Laurence Binyon
I read somewhere that the Military Airlift Command terminal at Travis Air Force Base had "The Band Played Waltzing Matilda" on a continuous loop during the Viet Nam War.
ANZAC Day, as I would expect both of my regular readers to know, was originally to commemorate the
British, Irish, Indian, Newfoundland (not at the time formally part of Canada), and French troops also participated, but the actions of the Aussies and Kiwis are most well-known; despite the fact that both had been independent Commonwealths of the British Empire for years at the start of WWI, it is commonly held that it was the actions of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps at Gallipoli marks the true psychological and cultural birth of the two nations.
ANZAC Day is actually observed on April 25th, which is "tomorrow" for us septics*, but "today" Down Under.
