    Anzac Day Australia

    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.

    I had to look this up:
    "What is ANZAC Day?ANZAC Day – 25 April – is probably Australia's most important national occasion. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War."

    As a I live in the area where our our National D-Day Memorial is located (Bedford, Virginia, USA), I appreciate our nations's observations and commemorations of efforts and sacrifices in wartime. Have a good day in your way.

    We made Anzac biscuits one year for my son's class for Remembrance Day (Nov. 11)here in Canada. It was a recipe that travelled well for sending to the troops during WW1. It also didn't use eggs that were hard to come by. They were very tasty and a good aid for the teenagers to remind them of the hardships suffered for men stationed overseas. The recipe was from Martha Stewart under Anzac Biscuits.

    First I have heard of this. Good to know at 67 there are lots of things I don't know. This board of wonderful people has taught me lots of things. Including new technics for making quilts and just life in general.
    Have a good day.

    It brings a tear to the eye to remember those that fought for our freedom.

    I attended our local Anzac Day Service, which also includes local school children, who together with other groups place wreaths at the memorial for fallen servicemen and women, lest we forget. Darlene
