Lest we forget

Today is ANZAC Day here in Australia and all over the country people collected at dawn ceremonies to honour members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC).  Exmouth turned out in force with a packed ceremony site in front of the Shire Hall.

My favourite moment of the morning was this young father with his small child approaching an old soldier to shake his hand. The soldier poignantly removed his own poppy from his chest, near his row of medals, and pinned it to bub.

Lest we forget.
