Remember also that 15% of all Australians killed in World War I died at Gallipoli. So the next time some cretin mentions the Royal Wedding, or asks that we all salute the Queen today, remind them that, without the utter stupidity and thevattitude that all Australians were inferior because we weren't English, we'd not have ANZAC Day.
I know which I'd rather. And I have no issue with anyone who's gone to war, my issue has always been with the cowardly politicians and generals, those who sat behind the scenes and send children and young adults to fight their battles because they were too weak to do so themselves. If wars were fought by those who declared them then we'd have no war.
Lest we forget, lest we forget all of the reasons.
And remember kiddies, ANZAC Day isn't about Collingwood and Essendon, no matter what Fat Ed would have you believe.
