Just got back from a post ANZAC Day Dawn Service surf. It was great to see all those people out early on a Saturday.
One of my buddies called me last night so there was a few of the local crew there and then we walked back down the beach to my place and grabbed the surf boards.
For those international readers, ANZAC Day is our memorial day to fallen soldiers from all the wars Aussie has been involved in. The ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The day, April 25th, marks the day that Australian and New Zealand troops landed on Gallipoli (Turkey) in 1915. It was the first combat that Australian and New Zealand troops had encountered. The Gallipoli campaign was a military defeat (it was Winston Churchill’s idea. his position at the time was First Lord of the Admiralty, the political head of the British Navy).
So at dawn on the April 25th, there are services honouring fallen ANZAC’s.
Some pics of my beach at dawn, I didn’t take these pics, it was a bit grey this morning but you get the idea.
