Today April 25th is ANZAC day in Australia, kind of the same as veterans day in USA we share our day with New Zealand and for us its a public holiday. These were taken at our town parade this morning. Albany was the last place the Aussie soldiers saw leaving our shores for Galipoli in WW1.

The old



and the young, the spirit of ANZAC continues today with crowds getting bigger each year















The airforce did a fly by of the harbor due the service. This is where the boats left from in WW1
