I have just returned form the ANZAC Days Dawn Service, at Panania. The size of the crowd gets bigger each year, a wonderful thing to see. There was a little girl, about 3yrs old, she wiggled her way to the very front because she wanted to see what was going on. It was lovely to see the club members make way for her and how quite she was, as if knowing the solemnity of the service. We must encourage the younger generation to actively commemorate ANZAC Day, so that the legacy doesn't die.
If you have servicemen and women on your tree, the Australian War Memorial web site, Australian National Archives and TROVE are somewhere to start your searching.
LEST WE FORGET
