ANZACS

We did this about 3 years ago and I still like it. What really interests me is that there are so many comments – some not terribly academic (lol) – but there are comments. And Auckland Museum, for whom we did this, hardly notices it. Not that they should but….it’s a shame we never got to complete the fascinating story of the Nuieans who fought in the First World War. Hopefully one day.

But there you go …..ANZAC Day. And those words still stir:
“They shall grow not old as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.”

For all the dads.

Personal note? “Lifelong” the word du jour.
