Some may say 90 odd years to late. However, I know this is an old bit of news http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=450634 but I find it deeply ironic. As a fully paid up member of the Australian Regular Army I very much enjoy the way in which Anzac Day is celebrated, particularly at such a time where there are so many Servicemen deployed. While Anzac Day does look backwards, at its roots - how I love the fact that it's a day where "it was all my fault", Anzac Day also celebrates all those serving the country now. It's a day where people buy you beers if you rock up wearing your gongs - a strange concept to those in the UK I appreciate, and a veritable Waltfest, but it's a good day. This article talks of keeping young Aussies away from Gallipoli, the place where they have been taught is the very seat of their existance. Sad but true to say, it seems to have become another tick on the T-Shirt slogan for the "European tour". Pissed gits sleeping on Commonwealth grave sites, arguments with Turks about how the service should be commemorated, coach loads of tourists vying for a look in etc, respect seems to play a very small part. I agree with the comments, but fail to see how they can enforce them. Anyway, suffice to say I'll be tucking in to a rum at 0430 on Fri AM!!
