ANZAC DAY and Our Beautiful World...

 
 
Anzac Day, 25 April, is one of Australia’s most important national occasions. It marks the anniversary of the first major military action fought by Australian and New Zealand forces during the First World War.  It's a national public holiday. It also recognises all other theatres of war too.
 
 ANZAC stands for Australian and New Zealand Army Corps. The soldiers in those forces quickly became known as Anzacs, and the pride they took in that name endures to this day.

Today Paige marched in my fathers place as he can no longer manage it. With his medals and his grandfathers medals doned to her jacket,  Paige arrived for muster and was overjoyed when she was given the RAAF (Royal Australian Air Force) banner to hold and to lead the Air Force Association division.  My father's military career was first with the Army , followed by the Air Force.    Needless to say, Paige was so chuffed and proud......  And my dad... even moreso....
 
 
After the march to the cenotaph and ceremony,  Paige and her Grandpa went to the Air Force Club for a drink and catch up with ole war mates.

'BOOKS'
 
Inspired by our trip to England and the Potter Studios...
The attention to detail is amazing
 
Do you know what this represents....? 
 
Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
Professor Lupin's trunk..
When Professor Lupin resigns... . . .
 his trunk packs itself up all by its self magically... . . .
books hop onto the shelf, shoes tuck away and coats hung...
 
What imagination!
