Lest We Forget

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.

Poem excerpt:  'For the Fallen' by Laurence Binyon

Our neighbour Ron after the school ANZAC Day assembly.  He is a Vietnam Veteran who grows the Flanders poppies every November in his garden.

To my international friends if you wish to know more about this day that Australian and New Zealander's commemorate the Australian War Memorial has an abundance of information on ANZAC traditions.
