I would hope in the coming hours that all posts on this web site reflect on a day of remembrance, to all those who sacrificed their lives, or well being.

My grandfather died of wounds at Gallipoli on 8/8 /1915.
He was in the 12th Battalion. A Company.
I was fortunate to visited his grave in 2004.
It was one of the most emotional moments I have ever experienced.
Lest We Forget.

My grandfather Henry George Cox enlisted with the 1st AIF in 1914 assigned to the 5th battalion, H company and formed part of the initial invasion that landed at Anzac Cove Gallipoli on 25/04/1915. After returning home in 1916 he packed his kit and swag and set off to explore this great country. It was not just a way of healing but of thanks to his fallen comrades that have given so much to protect our way of life.

Always a proud day, and yet so humbling.

My 8 year old son was up early this morning to watch the Anzac commemorations on TV, we live too far away from anywhere that we can attend the Dawn Service and Parade. He remembers his Great, Great Uncle (his great Grandmothers brother) who died on this day 95 years ago as a young Lieutenant at Gallipolli. He also remembers his late Great Grandfather who served with British Forces on the Western Front, survived and moved to Australia. Then we move to WW2 where both his Grandfather (Now deceased) and his grandmother served with the Royal Australian Navy. My enduring hope is that as he grows older, all he has to do is remember these his relatives involved in past conflicts, and not become one of those who is remembered. Then I look at the current world situation and must admit that my confidence is not high in that regard. Lest we forget.
Every place visited is a new experience.
