    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 !

    Peterborough City Council - Pupils help commemorate 'Lonely Anzac' at graveside service

    Peterborough Museum 1

    The Northern Echo - Home at last for a war hero

    With Respect !

    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.
