So today is our ANZAC Day, a public holiday in Australia and New Zealand, to remember the brave men of the first landing in Gallipoli and all the other battles which our brave soldiers were involved in.  You might be wondering about the poppy flower that appears on Google today, it's one of the symbols of remembering the Anzacs, so now you know..  Also, ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps.

Unfortunately I could not get up early enough for the Dawn Service here, but while I had lunch I stopped to watch the broadcast of the Dawn Service at Villers-Bretonneux, France, where one of the final battles of WWI was fought and won by Anzac soldiers alongside French soldiers and many others.

So today I was able to be in the styling event, not just because it's a holiday here today, but more importantly because of the bravery of those soldiers.  Our grandfathers, great grandfathers, great uncles, both Aussie and Kiwi (NZ), and those of all other nations too.

I will simply finish this with the poem that is read before the Last Post is played.

    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! <3
