The Last Post is played at an Anzac Day ceremony, 25 April Anzac Day. Ceremonies like this are held in virtually every suburb and town in Australia and New Zealand on Anzac Day each year.

Anzac Day is a national day of remembrance in Australia and New Zealand and is commemorated by both countries on 25 April every year to honor members of the Australian and New Zealand Army Corps (ANZAC) who fought at Gallipoli in Turkey during World War I.

It now more broadly commemorates all those who died and served in military operations for their countries.

25 April is ANZAC DAY where we remember all who felled and fought saving our future.

I had an Uncle that never return from World War One, he was the only male in the family of Corbishley’s, now the name in New Zealand is extinct.

Most Kiwis fighting during World War Two fought as part of 2 New Zealand Division.

My Father-in-law, George Arnold Hagley, Birth date 17 February 1894 fought in World War One, he was only 22 years old, so young, lucky he was a returned soldier, there are many stories which we will never forget.

HERE’S TO YOU DAD you will never be forgotten.

BODY ON EMBARKATION New Zealand Rifle Brigade

    • Yes! thanks my mind is full of thought this morning for my father-in-law, thankful because if he had not returned, I wouldn’t have my wonderful family, 5 children, 14 Grandchildren, 14 Great Grandchildren.
