ANZAC Soldier, World War 1, The Cenotaph, Sydney NSW Australia. Off my TV broadcast of the Dawn Service this morning. "For the Fallen" : an excerpt. "They went with songs to the battle, they were young, Straight of limb, true of eye, steady and aglow. They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted; They fell with their faces to the foe.
