    Anzac Day occurs on 25 April and it commemorates all ANZACS killed in war and also honours returned servicemen and women.


    "We Shall Keep the Faith"


    Oh! You who sleep in Flanders Fields,
    Sleep sweet-to rise anew!
    We caught the torch you threw
    And holding high, we keep the Faith
    With all who died.


    We cherish, too, the poppy red
    That grows on fields where valour led;
    It seems to signal to the skies
    That blood of heroes never dies,
    But lends a lustre to the red
    Of the flower that blooms above the dead
    In Flanders Fields.


    And now the Torch and Poppy red
    We wear in honour of our dead.
    Fear not that ye have died for naught;
    We'll teach the lesson that ye wrought
    In Flanders Fields.




    Miss Moina Michael (1869-1944),
