Anzac Day

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign ( 1915 )  that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.

The acronym ANZAC stands for Australian and NZ Army Corps, those soldiers were known as Anzacs.   Anzac Day remains one of the most important national occasions of both Australia and New Zealand and is remembered on 25th April each year.

The Australian War Memorial, in Canberra ACT, has a wall named the  “ Roll of Honour ” which records and commemorates members of the Australian armed forces who have died during or as a result of war service.

Poppies adorn the panels of this wall, placed beside names as a small personal tribute to the memory of a particular person, or to any of the thousands of individuals commemorated there.

Maybe the women and her children above are remembering some one special to them.
