Wednesday 25th 8 am. Anzac Day here in this part of the world. Its the day New Zealand along with Australia commemorate the sacrifice our armed forces have made in all wars in the service of their country.

The ceremonies held at dawn at war memorials all over the country and abroad, centre around the battle of Suvla bay on the Gallipoli peninsula in the Dardanelles 1915. The conflict lasted a couple of years with the only result being 130,000 lives lost from both sides of the divide.. Thought of those the Turks lost 86000 dead.
But for a fledgling country like New Zealand the death of 3000 soldiers in one battle was a devastating result. Australia lost nearly 11000 and part of the total contained 49 soldiers from Newfoundland.

Big day here remembering those gone and those still serving in a world racked by wars where our loved ones go in harms way. .

"Whenever anyone preaches disunity, tries to pit one of us against the other, through class warfare, race hatred or religious intolerance, you know that person seeks to rob us of our freedom and destroy our very lives...and we know what to do about it. Working together to produce an ever greater abundance of material and spiritual values for all. That is the secret of American prosperity."
