Lessons along the way

Am really enjoying re-reading Uncle Bert's diary - I've read ahead a couple of paragraphs... The next part I will type starts April 25, 1917 and Bert will talk about Anzac day and marching through Adelaide to commemorate the Gallipoli landing! I'm amazed that Anzac day & the ill fated Gallipoli landing was commemorated so soon after it happening. I had assumed (wrongly!) that it would have come to being acknowledged and honoured after the War was over... I'm learning as I go :) Here's a link to a wikipedia entry about the Gallipoli Campaign
