a life well lived

and the band played "Waltzing Matilda"

Before this bleary-eyed Grammie sails off to the land of Winken, Blinken and Nod, I want to send my Australian near & dear all my love on on ANZAC Day.  
April 25 honors the devastating sacrifice made by the Australian-New Zealand Expeditiary troops on the beaches of Gallipoli in what was from the most spectacular military blunder of World War. 

I will always honor the brave young colonial troops (very few English died under the Turks withering fire, although the battle plans came straight from Whitehall) who fought and died on the beaches at Gallipoli.

Love to all – Nan
