Yeah, RBM, Mogo, Brett, JGF, even you Scott, we watched them march when we were kids, a deeply moving experience, to see the real ANZAC's, mostly in uniform. No PTSD in those days, they just dealt with it. (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder).

 

We were taught as kids that Diggers, Aussies and Kiwi's, were sent up Gallipoli Beach as a diversion by the British, while they tried to land at another inlet. The truth is that it was a 6 month campaign with heavy losses on both sides, and more British killed than others, We lost 8000, most of them in the first few days. And ultimately the British mandated a pull out. Notably all the British Generals were rotated or replaced during the campaign, one in fact, a mental breakdown when he refused to send more troops to sure death.

 

It is a holiday worth keeping.

It is still the same old story , Old men in government in very safe places send young men and now woman to fight and die in very dangerous places ,these combatants if lucky enough to come home, have there own demons to contend with back in civilian life as Brett has eluded too.
