I would like to express my respect to those who lost their lives and those who survived. I'm raising a pint to you all.

Cheers

I'll go home and play "And the Band Played Waltzing Mathilda" tonight. Best anti-war and remembrance song. In lieu of a pint, I'll raise my morning coffee. It's important to remember.

I can't remember who are ANZACS.
Would you please refresh our memory.

Good shout, Beerman, it's galling to visit gallipoli and see the awful conditions and consequences of the 'great war'. Shall open a bottle in honour myself.

In 1934 Ataturk wrote a tribute to the ANZACs killed at Gallipoli

"Those heroes that shed their blood and lost their lives... You are now lying in the soil of a friendly country. Therefore rest in peace. There is no difference between the Johnnies and the Mehmets to us where they lie side by side now here in this country of ours... you, the mothers, who sent their sons from faraway countries wipe away your tears; your sons are now lying in our bosom and are in peace. After having lost their lives on this land. They have become our sons as well."
