Below is an excerpt from the Australian War Memorial site explaining very briefly what ANZAC day is all about.
Wednesday 25 April 2012ANZAC Day goes beyond the anniversary of the landing on Gallipoli in 1915. It is the day we remember all Australians who served and died in all wars, conflicts, and peacekeeping operations. The spirit of ANZAC, with its human qualities of courage, mateship, and sacrifice, continues to have meaning and relevance for our sense of national identity. On ANZAC day, ceremonies are held in towns and cities across the nation to acknowledge the service of our veterans.

This fits in so well for the Boys Dig It! challenge at the 4 Crafty Chicks this week. This is my second last post as a guest designer for their challenge, hope to see you joining in.
