The ANZAC Centenary (from 2014 to 2018) commemorates Australia’s involvement in World War I and remembers anyone who has served in a war or conflict as well as those men and women still serving in the Defence Forces today.
It was on 1 November 1914 that the first convoy of Australian and New Zealand ships left Albany in Western Australia to transport the ANZACs to the battlefields of World War I.
When most people think of the ANZACs, they think about the landing at Gallipoli on 25 April 1915. The 100th anniversary of this moment will be commemorated with an ANZAC Day long weekend in Australia and many other events around the world.
Perhaps the largest event will be the traditional Dawn Service at Gallipoli. 8000 Australians, 2000 New Zealanders and 500 official representatives from other Nations will form a 10,500 strong crowd on the Gallipoli Peninsula in Turkey.
Here is a song that captures the 100 year commemoration.
Spirit of the ANZACs
Lest We Forget

Last year, Vicki bought a new Christmas tree this year. She said she bought one that she thought was very stylish and would match our dark lounge room decor.
When it arrived she asked Paul and me to help me put it together and check the lights were working. When Vicki asked Paul what he thought of the new tree, he said, "looks really cool....it's a bushfire Christmas tree".
Yes folks, our new black, stylish Christmas tree will be forever known as the "bushfire Christmas tree".
