ANZAC Day is commemorated on the 25th April every year in Australia.   It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War. ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. 

ANZAC Day has become a National day of remembrance for soldiers in all military operations that Australians have been involved in.

  2. Nice. I think we forget that our pets love us and miss us when we're gone. These pics certainly show that.

  4. These are gorgeous photos and what a beautiful sentiment. My grandfather was stationed in Australia during WWII and he had nothing but wonderful things to say about the country and the Australian military.
