A sacred day for all Kiwis and Aussies. As I couldn’t drag myself out of bed for a dawn service standing in the rain, I thought I’d post some ANZAC images instead, taken at the Auckland War Memorial Museum and, above, from Melbourne’s wonderful Shrine of Remembrance in the Botanical Gardens which we visited in January.
