ANZAC DAY 2008 : LEST WE FORGET
Anzac Day is a National public holiday and is considered one of the most spiritual and solemn days of the year in Australia and New Zealand
Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps, whose soldiers were known as Anzacs. The pride they took in that name endures to this day, and Anzac Day remains one of the most important national occasions of both Australia and New Zealand.
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.
Ma photo, aujourd'hui a été prise de la TV, et elle montre le cimetière de guerre chez Villers-Bretonneux. Ici, beaucoup de soldats australiens sont enterrés.
