ANZAC DAY Tattoo by — David Palethorpe

Wow! Such a detailed tattoo


I’m not really a tattoo kind of person but this has to be one of the best and certainly one of the most thought provoking ever designed. I have no idea who is responsible but whoever you are – Thank You.

Anzac Day heroes, and lessons we don’t seem to learn — BoomingOn

I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Gallipoli and Anzac Cove twice.

Anzac Day

Anzac Day marks the anniversary of the first campaign 0n 25th April 1915 that led to major casualties for Australian and New Zealand forces during World War One. Thousands of men of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (Anzacs) died during the failed Gallipoli landings in Turkey in 1915, which aimed to take control of the Dardanelles waterway – a key route to the Black Sea and Russia.

The events of 1915 and the conflicts that followed have been remembered on 25th April since 1916.

On 24-25April 1918, Australian and New Zealand and British military  recaptured French town Veillers-Bretonneux from Nazis (the Battle of Veillers-Bretonneux). Prince Charles was in Veillers-Bretonneux today, to commemorate, this battle 100 years on.

I had not heard of it prior to today but, in addition to Prince Charles being in France there was a service at Westminster. New Dad of three William attended and forthcoming bride and groom respectively Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attended THE Westminster service.
