    "Ode of Remembrance"...

    "They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old, Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn. At the going down of the sun and in the morning We will remember them."

    RIP Grandad.... Frederick Clair Burnes ( Australian Army Officer, Murdered by the Japanese Army in POW Camp, Papa New Guinea 1942 )..

    OMG, mind reader, i was going to do the exact same post!

    I always do the Dawn Service, Kaos and myself go - I dont march in it anymore though. BUT, it is pouring rain right now, no idea if they will do it if it is raining in the morning? I am working till 4am, so will drive past on the way home and see if they are setting up for it or not.

    I was planning on going to the 10am service/march, but Grandpop has a thing on at his nursing home, so I will sleep most of the day, and go and catch up with him at 2, then we are off to the pub, Grandpop, Dad and myself will have a few beers, Dad and myself will waste all our money on Keno and food, then we will go home for dinner and get yelled out for drinking/eating so much by mum

    The show is on here and I want to head there if possible, but no way I am going if it is raining, sitting here waiting to see if they will do fireworks or not in the rain so i can watch them before work!

    I used to always march - in full uniformed regalia, with my Pa's WW2 medals on since he left the world. But there's no local Dawn Service, only a local march at 10.30am which doesn't fit in with other things very well. I don't work in uniform anymore either.

    Anyone heading to Canberra - the Australian War Memorial is an awe inspiring place to visit, everyone should get in there when they're in the district and have a look.

    My Army son is waking the kids age 6,4 and 3 to go to the Dawn service, weather permitting.
    He has been here in a year past as part of the colour party for our small town.
    Other son marches with his great grandfather's medals here.

    I always have a "silent, respectful" time to think & reflect on the fallen today & on November 11th at 11am. My Grandfather was a stretcher bearer on the death fields of Africa & France during WW1. I was very lucky that he survived & came home.
