Your NOT forgotten !!!
In Peterborough UK, we have a "lone grave" to an OZ who died and was buried in the City Cemetery in July 1916.
Each year at Sgt. Hunter's grave, the local British Legion / Army cadets etc hold a service as close to ANZAC day as possible.
Here are a few links !

With Respect !

i am glad i found this forum Thanks to both of you for posting this i didn't know( there is a lot i don't know ) and i found it very interesting especially ww1 .Some story like this one of the Sgt
Hunter need to be told
i attended the dawn service at the Shrine in melbourne this year - biggest crowd i've ever seen!
i remember when it was only a couple of hundred, mostly vets and their family. Pity my pop passed away - he would have loved to see those long passed honored in such a manner.
Just a note for the rest of the world
- ANZAC day does not glorify war as there is none present. We do it to pay our respects to the dead so that nothing like this happens again, human nature being what it is this is anyway.
hi guys if you ever come to Turkey to visit Anzac memorials here please let me know
