The Starts at 60 writers team seek out interesting topics and write them especially for you.

  1. It is a day of respect and thanks for those who have served our nation in war and peace.
    Lest we forget, that this land is free but a huge price has been paid ……

  2. I am sorry but the Anzac Day Rememberances this year have gone over board. Gone is the respect and its been sensationise . Our family had 4 services person including my mother. I am sure if they were alive now they wouldbeupset at all the carry on. We live with people who very affected by war and did not talk about it. Lest we forget respectflly.

  3. Of course people have gone “overboard”. 100 years is a huge milestone of the first landing of the Anzacs. It is not a celebration of war, but a remembrance.

  4. It means a time for me to thank all servicemen and women and time to reflect on the those who passed in fighting for their country or for others.

  5. Hey ! What about Dunedin? We are a city and the men lost from this wonderful city and province of Otago should be noted as well !

  6. In Shepparton Vic , if anyone has the actual time of the Dawn service , please post .

  7. Walking the Somme and seeing all the headstones in places I could not believe, looking for the area where my gt uncle Arthur Tynan died on April 12th 1918. After a few days we all felt shell shocked, at the carnage of it all and the wonder that anyone actually lived thru it all. Arthur was buried, but in the fighting his grave site was just another piece of land all blown to pieces. His name, along side thousands from all allied forces, is on memorials at Canberra, Villers Brettoneux, The Menin Gate and in his home town of Gummeracha Sth Aust. I will be at the dawn service in Mackay, and will place a tribute to him there.

  8. My husband was a POW in North Korea for 2 1/2 years. When he passed away he left his medals to his grandson Travis, who will be marching with pride at the Kelmscott, WA, 3pm commemoration this afternoon. See my husbands book “Captured at the Imjin River by David Green. He was captured and his best friend was killed on this very day in 1951.
