They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun, and in the morning
We shall remember them.
LEST WE FORGET.
Today is ANZAC day here in Australia - a day when we come out in force to remember and be thankful for those men and women from Australia and New Zealand who 'served and died in all wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations'. Originally Anzac Day was a day to honour the soldiers who fought at Gallipoli against the Ottoman Empire during WW1. The attack lasted eight months and over 56,000 Allies died.
This book is rather soft and poignant - quite a contrast to my book last week. Once again I have used and re worked a page from my 'Pieces for Peace 14-18' book which was exhibited in Brussels. These covers were made from poppies I cut out from another print and they are encased in transparent film to protect the 'fallen poppies'.
