      ANZAC day

      Least we forget the Australian, NZ, Indian, French, French African and British men that fought so bravely.

      We owe a great debt to these service men

      A Tribute to ANZAC Day

      With their hair a little whiter, their step not quite so sure
      Still they march on proudly as they did the year before.
      Theirs were the hands that saved us, their courage showed the way
      Their lives they laid down for us, that we may live today.

      From Gallipoli's rugged hillsides, to the sands of Alamein
      On rolling seas and in the skies, those memories will remain.
      Of airmen and the sailors, of Lone Pine and Suvla Bay
      The boys of the Dardenelles are remembered on this day.

      They fought their way through jungles, their blood soaked desert sands
      They still remember comrades who rest in foreign lands.
      They remember the siege of old Tobruk, the mud of the Kokoda Trail
      Some paying the supreme sacrifice with courage that did not fail.
      To the icy land of Korea, the steamy jungles of Vietnam
      And the heroic battle of Kapyong and that epic victory at Long Tan.

      Fathers, sons and brothers, together they fought and died
      That we may live in peace together, while at home their mothers cried.
      When that final bugle calls them to cross that great divide
      Those comrades will be waiting when they reach the other side.
