Rosemary - that's for remembrance

My first ANZAC day out of uniform -I am not going to any services today, but I will not let the day pass unnoticed - and not just because Pierre was barking at 5am because the bugles strains of "the Last Post" were in the air from a dawn service.

Please take a moment and pay your respects to those you have served our country in uniform, and especially those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice. The personnel in our defence force serve without questioning - in an environment without democracy, to support and maintain our own democracy. Even if you are opposed to conflicts and hostilities they are fighting in, remember, the personnel deserve your support even if the cause doesn't.

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.
Lest we forget.
