Lest we forget.
21

Today being ANZAC Day we went down to Mooloolaba beach for the dawn service of remembrance.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old,

Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning

We will remember them.

I got there rather early,

The town was deserted.

And the beach.

The sea looked a bit rough for the launching of the surf boats.

But the crowds soon gathered.

The boats were launched

there were a few capsises.

But as dawn broke the rains stayed away and the service was quite moving.

Age might not weary them, but for the first time in my life someone in the crowd had to help me to my feet for the singing of the National Anthem.
