ANZAC DAY 25th APRIL 2015
100 YEARS SINCE THE LANDING AT ANZAC COVE ON THE 25th  APRIL 1915

They went with songs to the battle, they were young
Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted
They fell with their faces to the foe.

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.
