Just returned from what was an extremely wet, yet well attended ANZAC Day service at Vancouver’s Victory Square on the corner’s of Hastings and Cambie Streets. The rain may have shamefully kept me away from such an occasion many years ago, but since my life changing pilgrimage to the shores of Gallipoli (Turkey) for ANZAC Day back in 2001, I vowed to attend the April 25 service every year no matter where I am in the world, no matter the weather.
Joining a few hundred other Aussies, Kiwis and Canadians who gathered at the Cenotaph, fallen “Diggers” from Australia, New Zealand and Canada during military conflicts both past and present were remembered in a small ceremony which included prayers, hymns, wreath laying, national anthems, a minute silence and of course the playing of “The Last Post”.
Following is a few images I snapped during the service.
Lest We Forget.
