Long Weekend (ANZAC Day)

Its been a long weekend this week, the reason is ANZAC day which was on 25 April

ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps

It started as a day to honour members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I.

It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries. Anzac Day is also observed in the Cook Islands, Niue, Samoa and Tonga.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old;
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.
