As I will be off-line this weekend attending ceremonies away from home, I'm making this post a couple of days early, while I have the opportunity.

 

This Saturday, 25th April 2015, marks the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli landings and the birth of the ANZAC legend.

For Australians and New Zealanders this is an important day in our cultures as we pay our respects to those that have gone before us.

 

Many of your fellow players are current or ex serving men and women of the national forces through out the world.

 

On this special day of remembrance, please take the time to pay your respects to those that have served, so that we may enjoy the comforts of our modern communities.  Take the time to think of those still serving in actions throughout the world, who cannot be at home enjoying the life we do.  Please take the time to think of their families, husbands, wives, mothers and fathers, sons and daughters that also sacrifice much in their support of their loved ones.

 

Please put the politics of war aside, while we unite to remember and pay our respects to those that have made the ultimate sacrifice.

 

Lest we forget.

Do read up on stuff before posting. 

 

It's a line that's added on to the Ode of Remembrance, one of the most moving poems to the war dead. It's fourth stanza is typically used in memorial ceremonies.

Commemorate, not celebrate. And it's already being done in this thread.

 

And back to the topic.

 

 Heroes who 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 Mehmets to us where they lie side by side here in this country of ours. You, the mothers, who sent their sons from far away 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.
