At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. ...

Today is ANZAC DAY in Australia. A few years ago I was sent a book about the love letters between a family separated by war.

I say family because included are the letters from the children to their father in North Africa. It had many parallels with the experience of my extended family during the Second World War, some of you in Australia may even have seen the programme made by the ABC. When I am feeling brave I read this book, always with a hankie close to hand.

When you have a second spare a thought for all the families of those people who are in a war zone.

Lest we forget.


  1. Lest we forget.

    How wonderful to have such a treasure.

  2. as long as there are books like that to be read and treasured we will never forget.


  3. Thanks for reminding us. It's so important to remember.
