Anzac day. Lest we Forget: We will Remember Them

A very emotional experience indeed. I have never attended a service at the cenotaph before, I was overcome by how many hundreds of people were there, in the darkness of dawn in the rain. Lest we forget.

We will remember them. Each and every one of them.

Anzac I have never had the opportunity to attend a service at the Cenotaph before, today was my first. I attended the Dawn Parade at Invercargill Cenotaph, and was absolutely bowled over with the hundreds and hundreds of people who were also there, gathering from 6:45am in the pouring rain. 

The Army were in attendance, along with many other services and servicemen, current and past. Cannon and gun salutes, the National anthems of both Australia and New Zealand were also sung, along with two very poignant hymns: ‘Abide with Me’ and ‘O God our help in ages past’.
