Anzac Day Mildura 2012

01 May

I want to share with you this photograph which was taken on 25th April this year

This is my Grandson Cameron Michael taken on his first Anzac day commemoration parade here in Mildura Australia.

Anzac day is the one day of the year that all over the country there are parades in memory of those who have served and died in military service, Anzac stands for Australian New Zealand Army Corp and originated from the Gallipoli landing on Turkish shores in the first world war.

It was great to have my Grandson attend his first Anzac day and I hope he carries on the tradition and yet at the same time does not have to witness first hand the atrocities and hopelessness of mans inhumanity against man.

          Hi Sue , great to hear from you, thanks for the lovely comment on the last grandchild , am heading off to Adelaide in the near future to visit the two we haven’t seen yet, you guys are certainly globe trotting by the sound of it, I am jealous, take plenty of pics, haven’t heard from Mark but suspect his bike ride came to a finish unfortunately
          Wishing you both all the best
