    Can't believe no other Aussies or Kiwi's posted an Anzac shot. Here's another of mine even though it's now a week late. East Timor vets.

    Sorry I don't understand that one. Are you suggesting that everybody should attend the ANZAC day march and take photos?
    I have not attended an ANZAC day service of any sort since 1970 or 71 but that does not mean I don't understand the meaning of the day or that I do not have relatives who were service personnel. I certainly don't need to take and display jingoistic photographs to somehow solidify my thoughts on the significance of the occasion.

    BTW. ANZAC should always be written in capitals.

    I don't think DPR is suggesting that at all. I think he's just expressing surprise that of all the Australian and NZ members here, he's the only one to have posted photos of the ANZAC Day march, which is a pretty special event in the Aust/NZ calendar. Special enough to warrant a public holiday, anyway.

    Yes, the occasion is significant. It commemorates the sacrifices made by the ANZAC personnel in two world wars and various other conflicts, so that we (and others) can lead comfortable lives. It does not glorify war -- far from it, in fact. Returned servicemen and women march to remember their comrades who did not return, and to remind us, too. Emotions run very high among the marchers on that day, and in the crowds that attend the dawn services around the country. Those services can be very moving.

    Photos of marching ex-diggers and Vietnam veterans (who were shamefully treated until recently) call attention to the fact that these people were prepared to put their lives on the line for us. All wars are evil, but sometimes you have to stand up for what's right. Taking photos of the occasion is one way of reminding us that wars cause untold pain and suffering to all concerned, and should be avoided if at all possible. Jingoistic? I don't think so.

    I enclose two photos taken at my local dawn service last year.

    BTW: ANZAC Day should always be written with a capital 'D'.
