in Australia they thought that when the last Great War veteran passed on, the memorial day (called ANZAC Day) would start to fade.
However it has gone from strength to strength.
Nearly every town has its Dawn Services & the capital cities have large & moving ceremonies.
Veterans from later wars march in parades & children also march, wearing their fathers' or grandfathers' medals.
The Returned Services League motto is "Lest we forget".
There is little chance of forgetting their sacrifice in this country.
