Well, as an Australian transplanted to New Zealand, I was keen to participate in this anniversary of remembering the sacrifice of Australian and New Zealanders in WW1 and subsequent conflicts. My NZ born granddad joined the AIF in West Australia and was in the second landing at Gallipoli. He survived but with an arm rendered useless by a bullet in the nerve plexus. His younger brother who had stayed in NZ joined the Otago Mounted Rifles and saw service in Passchendale. He, too survived. Other extended family were not so fortunate, a Scotsman of which my fathers family went forth to NZ,joined a Scots regiment and was killed in Europe aged 20, and so it goes on. At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them!
