Anzac Day 2010

I wrote last year about what Anzac Day means to us.

We didn’t make it to Dawn Parade this year, due to circumstances beyond our control – we’ll try again next year.  We did go to an Anzac Service later in the day, though, and it was lovely.  Pearl looked very solemn in her Girls’ Brigade uniform, the children all wore or held poppies, and we sang the national anthem and recited the Ode.  The sounding of the Last Post was especially poignant in light of the helicopter crash today that claimed the lives of three of our RNZAF personnel, ironically on their way to fly-past the Anzac Day Dawn Parade in Wellington.

At the going down of the sun, and in the morning,

we shall remember them.
