Another year has whizzed by and we find ourselves at ANZAC Day again. This year it is a little unusual because it has fallen on Easter Monday.

This ode is read at the dawn service:

They shall not grow 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.
We will remember them.
Lest we forget.

Underneath the memorial structure is a large walled area on which the names of fallen soldiers from Western Australia are inscribed.

My DH is working today (instead of catching up with his old Navy buddies at the RSL) so Mr W and I will be making our ANZAC biscuits together and seeing as it is also Easter we might spread the underside with chocolate. ANZAC biscuits are available through all grocery stores at this time of year but I believe that the thoughts and love that goes into baking your own makes them taste so much better.
