Marches and commemorative services have been taking place over the past week to remember the deeds and sacrifice by the ANZAC’s (Australian New Zealand Army Corps) 100 years ago at Gallipoli during World War I and since then in World War II, Korea, Malaya, Borneo, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan, as well as peacemaking and peacekeeping operations throughout the world. We remember the sacrifice of so many, to allow us to live in freedom. Dick Gadsden (President of RSL Sub Branch, Hills District) said “So let us mourn with pride, but let us also remember with equal pride those who served and still live.”
