This time of the year is always very special to me, as I know it is to many, many people.
I will be attending the Dawn Service at Mt Macedon tomorrow morning, together with my family...the kids look forward to this event every year, and it is now a tradition in our household. They don't mind getting up early, and heading up the mountain in the dark to remember the soldiers...they understand that the small amount of discomfort that we feel, just by getting out of bed earlier than usual, is just our way of honouring the enormous sacrifice of all those brave men and women who have fought in the conflicts of the past, as well as in more recent times.
It is a very special and solemn event, and if you get the chance to go along, I really recommend it...you will be moved, and you will never forget it.
A friend has just made me aware of Camp Gallipoli 2015...this is a Nationally organised event to be held on 24th/25th April 2015 to honour 100 years since the Gallipoli landing.
