To the splitting for the monarch. We have had votes here in Australian every few years now regarding whether we should split or not, and all votes have said no, so we shall see.
Krieg. Excellent photo mate, another great addition.
Stefan. The Australian soldiers would be grateful for your thanks, but slow down mate ANZAC day is on the 25th of April, when we have one minute silence for remembrance,
I am going down to the Parades on Friday and shall post some pics I take, hopefully I get some good ones.

Here is a read about the possible future of Anzac cove on Anzac day.

Just so we don't forget the "NZ" bit of ANZAC here's a good site on the 28th Bn.

this group has been given the task of taking control of part of gallipoli known
as chunuk bair and against all odds they succeed in penetration the area
well beond any other troops
sustained by the promise off support outnumbered by the turks and cut off
from supplies there courage deterination and humour keeps them fighting
untill the british navy begins to shell the hell out of them
a gruelling seventy two hours of blind faith courage and heroism
this is our new zealand brothers in arms.
I would never forget the members of the Anzac, my original post had a the NZ Anzac day view on it and a site to there anzac day parades and such. I have also included the Aboriginal people of Australia since they are also Anzacs as well.
Since I was born in NZ I hold just as much pride for them as well as the Australians, since you cant have the word Anzac without NZ or else it will probably be RAA (Royal Australian ARmy) since these days the Australian regiments are called the RAR (Royal Australian Regiment.
I was rather pleased today to hear a couple of the ladies I work with talking about ANZAC day, not to mention surprised.

French veterans to lead Brisbane Anzac Day parade
This year's Anzac Day parade in Brisbane will be led by a group of French military veterans.
The RSL says the move recognises the contribution made by French soldiers who fought alongside Anzac and other Commonwealth forces at Gallipoli.
The French veterans will carry four flags at the front of the parade, honouring French marines, medal holders, veterans and their Foreign Legion.
The parade begins at the corner of Queen St Mall and George Street at 10:00am (AEST).

Glad to see French are remembered too.
Gallipoli: The Facts & the Myths
Different websites give different numbers.
I really should know shouldn't I?
To you Ozzies & Kiwis, Gallipoli is seen as the entry of your Nations on the International stage.
To the British , it's just another costly campaign of many over the years.
I've just been sent this email,
thought I'd share some of it here.
Absolutely mate, but Australia's troops distingished themselves with there first real conflict as there own nation, and they proved to no longer be absolute commonwealth or dominion troops but a nation of men that could be relied on to fight and fight hard. Just look at the Australians history of succes's Tobruk, Kokoda, the gallant stand for sicily by both the oz and NZ troops, Italy as well, including the airmen in the RAF and the RAAF. In ww1 the gallant stand of Gallipoli showed the Anzac figthing spirt and courage under unbelievable odds, just look at what Anzac cove looks like, no one in their right mind would ever attempt such an amphibious assault on sich rocky ground. weeks after the initial landings the Anzac troops would bathe in the water on the coast and turkish snipers being up in the rocks could tap 'pot' shots at them. Both the Anzac and New Zealand troops did unbelieveablely well against the odds, and that is why we celebrate it so rigiorously.
I have met a few current Aussie soldiers and they were fantastic guys, if a little bonkers. I remember in particular an Aussie sapper SSM standing in the pouring rain in his slouch hat and Laura Ashley combats without blinking an eye until he looked at the sky and said 'bloody English weather!'
