Every Bed of Roses: ANZAC Day - an Ode to the Fallen and a list of ANZAC resources for you

ANZAC Day - an Ode to the Fallen

For the Fallen With proud thanksgiving, a mother for her children England mourns for her dead across the sea, Flesh of her flesh they were, spirit of her spirit, Fallen in the cause of the free. Solemn the drums thrill: Death august and royal Sings sorrow up into immortal spheres, There is music in the midst of desolation And glory that shines upon our tears. They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow, They were staunch to the end…

WWI Aussies (ANZAC) Australia and New Zealand Army Corp So many of our young men fought and died as ANZACs, in support of our Allies in every war since the First World War. We celebrate Anzac Day on April 25. We will remember them.

WW!1 Aussies

Australians. Tough looking lot possibly waiting for the barbee to heat up.

John "Jack" Simpson Kirkpatrick (centre of picture) who served under the name John Simpson, was a stretcher bearer with the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) during the Gallipoli Campaign. After landing at Anzac Cove on 25 April 1915, he obtained a donkey and began carrying wounded soldiers from the frontline to the beach, for evacuation. He did this for three and a half weeks, often under fire, until he was killed. Simpson and his Donkey are a key part of the "Anzac legend".

A turkish soldier help's a wounded anzac soldier- this is a very powerful image. These soldier's were fighting AGAINST each other.
